3. Choose a Date

Cuppa season is open from the early June to 31st October annually. Cuppa events at various CANSA Care Centres will signal the launch of the campaign on 7th June 2017.

You may wish to organise your Cuppa to coincide with a special calendar day e.g. Youth Day & Father’s Day, Women’s Day or Heritage Day. You could even choose to celebrate your birthday by hosting a ‘Birthday Cuppa’! Just be sure your intended guests are available & send out your invites sooner than later.

It is possible of course, to host a Cuppa For CANSA at any time of year, although Cuppa host materials, usually provided during campaign time, may then not be available.

4. Choose a Venue

This will depend on whether you are hosting a Corporate Cuppa or hosting an your own Cuppa – take the number of guests attending and the weather forecast into consideration!

Cuppas can be held anywhere – small or large venues, inside or outside, the sky is the limit! The key here is to book the intended venue well in advance, if this is necessary.

5. Choose a Theme & Message

Let your imagination run wild – you may host a ‘Women’s Day Cuppa’ or a ‘Birthday Cuppa’ or an ‘Extreme Cuppa’ – really, any theme will do… – beverages & snacks served can tie in with your theme if you wish.

Cuppa Hosts may choose to share some info regarding CANSA’s care and support services for cancer Survivors with their guests.You can always invite a special guest to share a message on your behalf. Read more…

6. Host & Enjoy Your Cuppa

Remember to enjoy the day and to take lots of photo’s to create memories that can be treasured – take pics of your table settings, decor, eats & drinks, special guests & activities, your guests having fun, etc…
