Word ‘n Cuppa For CANSA Gasvrou en Kies die Gesonder Opsie

English Press Release

7 Junie 2017 – Die Cuppa For CANSA-seisoen het amptelik op 7 Junie geopen met die bekendstelling van ‘n splinternuwe en gesonder opsie vir funksies. Die fondse wat in 2017 ingesamel word vir die #CuppaForCANSA -veldtog sal aangewend word vir KANSA se Sorgsentrums en spesifiek vir die versorging en ondersteuning wat KANSA bied aan almal wat deur kanker geraak word.

“Cuppa For CANSA” is ‘n prettige manier om broodnodige fondse in te samel wat KANSA in staat stel om in plaaslike gemeenskappe diens te doen. Die konsep van Cuppa kan aangepas word vir eindelose en vindingryke geleenthede en dit bied aan die gasvrou totale ‘artistieke beheer’. ‘n Cuppa-funksie kan klein of groot wees, dit kan aangebied word vir familie, vriende of kollegas en dit kan by enige plek gehou word. KANSA moedig gasvroue vanjaar aan om ‘n “gesonder opsie” te oorweeg. Tydens die funksie kan gesonde kos en drinkgoed aangebied word en resepte vir gesonde kos kan uitgeruil word,” sê KANSA se Hoof van Volhoubaarheid, Maria Scholtz.

Borge Maak Sorg- en Ondersteuningsprogramme Moontlik

“Ons is weereens baie dank verskuldig aan ons hoofborge, Shoprite en Checkers wat vanjaar weer die Cuppa-seisoen gaan borg. Soos in die verlede sal daar weer Cuppa-funksies in Shoprite en Checkers winkels aangebied word waar die publiek betrokke kan raak en die veldtog ondersteun. Glen Rooibos steun vir die tweede agtereenvolgende jaar ook die Cuppa-inisiatief. Shoprite, Checkers en Glen Rooibos het KANSA verlede jaar gehelp om meer as R4 miljoen in te samel. Dit is vennote soos hierdie wat dit vir ons moontlik maak om ons sorg- en ondersteuningprogramme in plaaslike gemeenskappe voort te sit,” voeg Scholtz by.

Cuppa ‘Gesonder Opsie’ Resep Kompetisie

Vir die 2017 Cuppa-seisoen loods KANSA ‘n “gesonder opsie” resep kompetisie. Gasvroue van Cuppa-funksies kan aan die kompetisie deelneem deur hul gesonder en alternatiewe resepte vir kolwyntjies (“cupcakes”) in te stuur. Pryse vir die lekkerste en gesondste kosresepte is op die spel. KANSA staan ‘n “gesonde leefstyl” voor en om gesond te lewe, moet jy slim en ingeligte keuses oor gesonde kos maak en dit wat jy eet en drink, geniet. Ons hoop van harte dat ons Cuppa-deelnemers ons sal ondersteun deur gesonde en alternatiewe keuses van geregte en drinkgoed aan te bied vir Cuppa-funksies,” sê Scholtz.

Vanjaar se Fokus

Die fokus vir vanjaar se Cuppa is om fondse in te samel en om bewustheid te kweek vir KANSA se Sorgsentrums. Ons het meer as 30 Sorgsentrums regoor Suid-Afrika. Hierdie sentrums bedien meer as 300 gemeenskappe en bereik meer as 92 000 kankerpasiënte en hul gesinne (statistieke van 1 April 2016 – 30 Maart 2017). Die SorgSentrums bied ‘n wye verskeidenheid van sorg- en ondersteuningsdienste wat die volgende insluit: siftingstoetse vir kanker, berading en ondersteuningsgroepe, opvoeding oor kanker deur middel van gesondheidsinligting, toesprake wat handel oor gesondheid en uitstallings, inligting oor KANSA Sorg Tuistes en TLC Tuistes, ens.

Enigeen kan ‘n Cuppa gasheer of gasvrou word. Kontak net jou plaaslike KANSA Sorgsentrum of maak gebruik van die handige wenke wat beskikbaar is die webwerf www.cuppa.org.za

“Vir vanjaar se Cuppa-veldtog het ons pragtige bekers om te koop vir R55 elk. Hierdie bekers is ‘n waardevolle herinnering wat jou altyd aan die Cuppa-seisoen en Cuppa-funksie van 2017 sal laat dink. Ons moedig jou aan om deel te wees van Cuppa 2017 – word ‘n gasheer of ‘n gasvrou van ‘n funksie of daag op as ‘n gas by enigeen van KANSA se Cuppa’s. Wees kreatief en innoverend en bied ‘n spesiale Cuppa aan,” voeg Scholtz by.

KANSA en Glen Rooibostee maak dit Amptelik

English Press Release

14 Junie 2016 – Dit maak perfekste sin vir KANSA om saam te span met Unilever Glen Rooibostee – juis as gevolg van die uitgebreide en goeie navorsing oor die gesondheidsvoordele wat Rooibos bied.

Glen Rooibos Tea

KANSA het aangekondig dat Glen Rooibostee voortaan KANSA se amptelike verskaffer van rooibostee sal wees. Dit beteken dat Glen Rooibostee verskaf sal word vir KANSA se 30 Sorgsentra, wat 11 Sorgtuistes en ander fasiliteite insluit. Glen Rooibostee sal ook de amptelike verskaffer van vanjaar se Cuppa For CANSA-veldtog wees.

Die Vermindering van Risiko

KANSA se Hoof Uitvoerende Beampte, Elize Joubert, sê: “Ons weet dat die risiko van tussen 30 en 40% van kankers verminder kan word deur lewenstyl faktore, wat dieet en oefening insluit. KANSA erken amptelik dat rooibos ‘n middel is wat risiko kan verminder. Ons is gelukkig dat rooibos inheems is aan Suid-Afrika wat dit maklik toeganklik en bekostigbaar maak. ”

Die Bevordering van ‘n Gesonde Leefstyl

Glen post

Glen Tee is al vir meer as 70 jaar ‘n gunsteling in Suid-Afrikaanse huishoudings. Unilever het die Glen Tee-produk uitgebrei en rooibostee ook onder dieselfde handelsnaam beskikbaar gestel. “Ons rooibostee pas natuurlik in ons visie vir dit waarvoor die Glen Tee handelsmerk sedert sy ontstaan en gedurende sy geskiedenis staan: om mense bymekaar te bring en om mense aan te moedig om mekaar se samesyn, geselskap en vreugde te deel en te geniet, ” sê Anthony Joseph, Unilever se Hoof van Bemarking en Kliëntediens. “Ons glo dat rooibostee met sy talle gesondheidsvoordele, perfek in lyn is met KANSA se deurlopende bevordering van ‘n gesonde leefstyl as ‘n manier om te help om die kankerrisiko te verminder.”

Meer Oor Rooibostee

Sommige van die fenomenale gesondheidsvoordele van rooibostee wat deur navorsing geïdentifiseer is, sluit die volgende in:

  • Die kragtige antioksidante wat rooibostee bevat veg teen vrye radikale wat kanker en hartsiektes veroorsaak.
  • Vrye radikale kan die DNA van selle beskadig, maar antioksidante verbind met die vrye radikale en strem en deaktiveer hulle voordat hulle enige verdere skade kan veroorsaak.
  • Rooibos verhoog ook die antioksidant status van die lewer en stimuleer die ensieme in die lewer om kankervormende stowwe (karsinogene) in die liggaam af te breek.
  • Die daaglikse inname van rooibos help om die liggaam te hidreer, dit kan help om cholesterolvlakke in die bloed te verlaag, dit beskerm die lewer, dit help om die vel gesond te hou en verlig talle selsiektes.
CANSA and Glen Rooibos Tea Make it Official

CANSA and Glen Rooibos Tea Make it Official

Afrikaanse Persvrystelling

14 June 2016 – It makes perfect sense for CANSA to team up with Unilever’s Glen Rooibos Tea with the many well-researched health benefits that Rooibos provides.

Glen Rooibos Tea

CANSA has announced that Glen Rooibos Tea is its official rooibos tea suplier. This will see Glen Rooibos Tea being supplied to CANSA’s 30 Care Centres that include 11 Care Homes, and other facilities. Glen Rooibos Tea will also be the official supplier for this year’s Cuppa For CANSA campaign.

Reducing Risk

Says CANSA CEO Elize Joubert: “We know that the risk of between 30 and 40% of cancers may be reduced through lifestyle factors including diet and exercise. CANSA officially recognises rooibos as a source that may reduce risk. We are fortunate that rooibos is indigenous to South Africa, making it affordable and easily accessible.”

Promoting a Healthy Lifestyle

Glen post

Glen Tea has been a favourite in South African homes for more than 70 years. Unilever then extended their Glen range to include a rooibos offering. “Our rooibos tea fits in naturally with what our Glen Tea brand has stood for throughout its history: bringing people together, sharing each other’s company, conversation and laughter,” says Anthony Joseph, Unilever’s Shopper and Customer Marketing Lead, “We believe that rooibos tea, with its extensive health benefits, aligns perfectly with CANSA’s continuous promotion of a healthy lifestyle as a means to help reduce the risk of cancer.”

About Rooibos Tea

Some of the phenomenal health benefits of rooibos tea, which have been identified through research include:

  • The potent antio-xidants contained in rooibos tea fight free radicals that contribute to cancer and heart disease. Free radicals can damage the DNA of cells, but anti-oxidants bind to the free radicals and inactivate them before they can cause any further damage.
  • Rooibos also increases the antio-xidant status of the liver and stimulates the liver enzymes that break down cancer-causing substances (carcinogens) in the body.
  • The daily consumption of rooibos helps to hydrate the body, may help decrease blood cholesterol levels, protect the liver, support healthy skin and ease numerous skin deseases.

Red Carnation Hotel Collection SA Cheque Handover to CANSA

We are extremely grateful to 12 Apostles Hotel, Oyster Box Hotel and Bushmans Kloof Reserve & Wellness Retreat for their continued support of our Cuppa For CANSA Campaign.

On Tuesday, 15 December 2015, Dr Melissa Wallace (Head CANSA Research), met with Gavin Ferreira (Red Carnation Hotel Collection) & Janie Van der Spuy at the 12 Apostles Hotel & Spa, to receive a cheque on behalf of CANSA. R10 800 was raised for CANSA.

Le Creuset Contribution to Cuppa Campaign & Winners 2015 Le Creuset Competition

CANSA is thankful to Le Creuset for supporting our Cuppa Campaign yet again.

For the fourth consecutive year, Le Creuset committed to assisting CANSA with their Cuppa For CANSA campaign. The focus for 2015, was on CANSA Care Homes, as reflected in the ‘Care in a Cup’ theme.

Le Creuset hosted their own ‘Grand Cuppa For CANSA’ tea parties at three of the country’s leading high tea establishments – in Johannesburg (Inanda Club), Durban (The Oyster Box) and Cape Town (The Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel), and raised a combined total of R174 115-00 for CANSA, with the generous support of attendees.

In addition, Le Creuset also boosted its own contribution by donating 15% of Chiffon Pink product sales during the campaign period (15 September to 31 October) to CANSA, amounting to R77 390-62.

Thank you Le Creuset!
