The Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) – Care Centre Cape Metro pulled out all of the stops for hostesses to host a cup of tea, coffee or soup to help raise funds.

Guests attended the launch of their regional Cuppa for Cansa themed “My Cuppa – My Story” at the Protea Hotel by Marriott Cape Town, in the Waterfront Breakwater on Saturday July 20.

Each guest received a goody bag, which included a pack of serviettes and coasters, to help hostesses along to donate, sponsor and support cancer survivors and their families.

The #cuppaforcansa campaign runs from June to October 31. Interested hosts or hostesses can plan an event, to help raise funds for those affected by cancer, to help care and support Cansa programmes.

* A ‘Women in Business’ Cuppa for Cansa networking event will be held at The Double Tree by Hilton – Upper Eastside, in Brickfield Road, Woodstock,
on Saturday August 3 between 2pm and 4pm. Tickets cost R150. Guest speakers include life coach Lynne Kock, marketing expert Letishia Charles, sippingteawith_d instagram blogger Danya Goosen and sheecas.closet instagram blogger Rasheeqah Karriem.
