The annual Cuppa for CANSA is back and this time Le Creuset, involved for its fourth consecutive year, have raised the stakes with even more prizes to be won for tea parties! The cookware giant (and everybody’s favourite) is urging all South Africans to join the fight against cancer by hosting their own tea parties with loved ones. Committed to assisting the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA), the Cuppa for CANSA friendly fundraising campaign, started over 30 years ago, is all about raising awareness. This years’ theme is ‘Care in a Cup’ in support of those affected by cancer, with the focus on CANSA Care Homes and the service provided to cancer patients staying there during treatment.
‘We have been so inspired and moved by tea parties held over the last three years that this year we have introduced three categories for prizes consisting of a R5000 Le Creuset voucher each. The categories are based on past entries and include: the best community initiative, the most creative home tea party and finally, the most moving message. This last one comes from an entry we received two years ago from one of our customers who was visiting her mother in hospital. The image was simple – it was of her handing her mum a cup of tea. It still gets me to this day’, says Jamie Paine, Marketing Manager of Le Creuset SA.
Le Creuset is hosting events to launch the campaign at various high tea establishments in Joburg, Cape Town and Durban with cooking demos, prizes to be won, and more! Visit lecreuset.co.za to find out how to book tickets.
