Cuppa-geleenthede samel geld in vir KANSA om vroeë en opsporing deur opvoeding te bevorder; vir bors-, prostaat- en velsiftingstoetse; die versorging van pasiënte, ondersteuning wat tuisgebaseerde sorg insluit, asook die huur van pruike en mediese toerusting en stoma-hulp.

Anita Snyders, KANSA se nasionale bestuurder vir Volhoubaarheid, verduidelik, “Cuppa is een van KANSA se gewildste veldtogte, danksy die wonderlike ondersteuning wat ons vanaf die publiek, vennote en borge kry, en ons is opgewonde om gashere en -vroue uit te nooi om te registreer om ’n geleentheid te hou.”

Vanjaar se Cuppa-tema is ‘With Friends Like Teas’ wat dui op die pret, warmte, omgee en deernis wat ervaar word wanneer mens tyd saam met vriende deurbring. “Een van my gunsteling gesegdes is ‘Vriendskap gaan nie oor hoeveel tyd jy saam met iemand deurbring nie. Dit gaan oor met wie jy die lekkerste tye het.’ Ek dink die Cuppa-geleenthede som dit perfek op,” voeg Snyders by.

Die tema eggo ook die sorg en deernis van die waardevolle werk wat KANSA regoor Suid-Afrika doen. Kankerpasiënte (oorwinnaars), geliefdes en versorgers benodig ’n vriend(in) wanneer hulle met kanker gediagnoseer word of daardeur geraak word. KANSA is al vir meer as 90 jaar lank toegewyd om diegene wat kanker in die gesig staar te help met inligting en hulpbronne, daaglikse bystand en emosionele ondersteuning.

KANSA nooi gashere en-vroue uit om ’n Cuppa-geleentheid te hou. Die eerste stap is om op die Cuppa For CANSA-webtuiste te registreer of deur ’n e-pos te stuur aan adewitt@cansa.org.za. Beide individue en korporatiewe maatskappye kan as deelnemers registreer. ’n KANSA streekspersoneellid word as vennoot aangestel om met ondersteuning van die geleentheid te help.

Gashere en -vroue kan ook vir die jaarlikse Cuppa for CANSA-kompetisie inskryf vir ’n kans om fantastiese pryse te wen. Die kompetisie is oop vir registrasie vanaf Julie 2023 en Cuppa-geleenthede kan van Augustus tot Oktober 2023 gehou word. Beperkte uitgawe Cuppa for CANSA-handelsware kan gekoop word en dien as oulike geskenke vir Cuppa-gaste. Pryse sluit in geborgde Body Kind sportsbra’s deur Lisa Raleigh, lugbraaiers en die groot prys van ’n spesiale Lisa Raleigh-bounti Bungee Studio trampolien (rebounder) vir die gasheer of -vrou wat die meeste geld insamel.

KANSA is dankbaar teenoor Five Roses, die amptelike Cuppa for CANSA-vennoot wat die produksie van die beperkte uitgawe Cuppa-bekers skenk, asook tee vir elke geleentheid.

Snyders sluit af, “Ons sien daarna uit om ons gashere en -vroue en hulle gaste te verwelkom en hoop dat hulle die geleentheid net soveel soos ons sal geniet. Cuppa bring vriende op ’n spesiale manier byeen en gee aan hulle die kans om ons met die geveg teen kanker te help, deur seker te maak dat ons met sorg- en ondersteuningsprogramme en gesondheidsveldtogte kan voortgaan om tot kankerbewusmaking en die verlaging van kankerrisiko by te dra.”

Gashere en -vroue kan geleenthede onder vanjaar se tema ‘With Friends Like Teas’ hou of hulle eie tema kies. Cuppa-geleenthede kan ook gehou word om spesiale dae te vier, soos verjaarsdae of herdenkings ten bate van KANSA. Gashere en-vroue kan self besluit of hulle dekor, drankies en eetgoed by die tema wil aansluit.

A Cuppa For CANSA – ‘With Friends Like Teas’

Afrikaans media release

19 July 2023 – The Cancer Association of South Africa’s (CANSA) annual Cuppa For CANSA (Cuppa) campaign aims to bring family, friends, colleagues and social groups together for an opportunity to spend quality time, and have fun, with one another. Cuppa events further raise funds for CANSA to offer early detection through cancer education; breast, prostate, and skin screenings; patient care and support that includes community home-based care, wig and medical equipment hire as well as Stoma care assistance. Participants can choose to either host a Cuppa or attend as a guest.

#CuppaForCANSA, #CANSACares, #CANSACareAndSupport, #WithFriendsLikeTeas #FiveRosesSA

Anita Snyders, CANSA’s National Sustainability Manager, explains, “Cuppa is one of CANSA’s most popular campaigns, thanks to the wonderful support that we receive from the public, event partners and sponsors, and we’re thrilled to invite hosts to register and host and event.”

This year’s Cuppa theme is ‘With Friends – Like Teas’ expressing the fun, warm, caring and compassion time spent with friends brings out. “One of my favourite sayings is ‘Friendship is not about who you spend the most time with. It’s about who you have the best time with’ and I think Cuppa events embodies this beautifully,” Snyders adds.

The theme also echoes the care and compassion of the invaluable work CANSA carries out, across South Africa. Cancer patients (Survivors), loved ones and caregivers need a friend when diagnosed or are impacted by cancer. CANSA has remained committed to connecting people facing cancer with information and resources, day-to-day help as well as emotional support for over 90 years.

CANSA invites hosts to host a Cuppa event. The first step is to register on the Cuppa For CANSA website or by emailing adewitt@cansa.org.za. Both individuals and Corporates can register as hosts. A regional CANSA staff partner is assigned as a staff partner to provide support with the event.

Hosts are eligible to enter the national Cuppa For CANSA competition to win fantastic prizes. This competition is open to register from July 2023 to host a Cuppa from August to end October and nominations close at midnight on 31 October 2023.  Limited edition, Cuppa For CANSA merchandise is available to purchase and make lovely gifts for Cuppa guests. Other prizes include sponsored Body Kind sports bras by Lisa Raleigh or air fryers and a final main prize of a Lisa Raleigh – bounti Bungee Studio Pro rebounder valued at R4 000 for the host raising the most funds.

CANSA is thankful to Five Roses, who is the official Cuppa For CANSA tea partner, who sponsor the limited edition production of Cuppa mugs and sponsoring tea for each event.

Snyders concludes, “We look forward to welcoming our hosts, and their guests and hope that they enjoy this event as much as we do. Cuppa truly brings friends together in a special way and gives them the opportunity to help us in the fight against cancer by ensuring that we can continue our care and support programmes and health campaigns to assist with cancer awareness and lowering cancer risk.”

Hosts can host events under this year’s theme ‘With Friends – Like Teas’ or choose their own theme. Cuppa’s can also be arranged to mark a special day, or occasion, such as a birthday or anniversary in aid of CANSA. It is up to the hosts, to tie in aspects such as décor, beverages, and snacks with the theme.

Samesyn met Cuppa For CANSA

Engelse Persverklaring

KANSA hou jaarliks die gewilde Cuppa For CANSA (Cuppa)-veldtog regoor Suid-Afrika. Die doel is om gesellig te verkeer en tyd met familie, vriende of kollegas by ’n Cuppa-geleentheid te spandeer en terselfdertyd geld vir KANSA in te samel om sodoende hul sorg en ondersteuningsdienste voort te sit vir diegene wat deur kanker geaffekteer word. Deelnemers kan self so ’n Cuppa-geleentheid hou of dit as ’n gas bywoon.

#CuppaForCANSA, #CANSACares, #CANSACareAndSupport, #TimeToTakeHeartTogether, #FiveRosesSA

Die tema vir vanjaar se Cuppa is ‘Spandeer Saam Hartstyd’ of ‘Time To Take Heart Together’. KANSA se Nasionale Volhoubaarheidsbestuurder Anita Snyders verduidelik, “Na twee jaar van virtuele Cuppa-geleenthede is ons baie opgewonde om met geliefdes, vriende en kollegas bymekaar te kom. Dis nie net om tyd saam te spandeer nie, maar ook om ons harte te wys deur die geveg teen kanker te ondersteun.”

Die tema het ook ’n dieper betekenis wat die mag van samesyn verteenwoordig. “Kanker is nie ’n siekte wat mens alleen kan beveg nie, en kankerpasiënte (Oorwinnaars), geliefdes en versorgers benodig ons ondersteuning en aanmoediging,” voeg Snyders by.

“KANSA nooi jou uit om jou eie Cuppa-geleentheid te hou. Die eerste stap is om op die Cuppa for CANSA-webwerf as gasheer of -vrou te registreer of ’n e-pos aan adewitt@cansa.org.za te stuur – registrasie is oop vir individue en besighede. ’n KANSA personeelvennoot sal jou kontak om jou geleentheid se besonderhede soos die datum en plek te bespreek, asook of jy wil reël dat ’n kankeroorwinnaar of bekende gasspreker daar optree. Die personeellid sal jou ook met uitnodigings en die relevante bemarkingsmateriale help,” voeg Snyders by.

Gashere en -vroue kan geleenthede hou onder vanjaar se tema ‘Spandeer Saam Hartstyd’ of ‘Time to Take Heart Together’ en kan KANSA se aanlyn ondersteuningsgroepe en hulpbronne deel om diegene wat deur kanker geaffekteer word te bemoedig. KANSA is daartoe verbind om diegene wat kanker in die gesig staar van inligting te voorsien, asook daaglikse hulp en die emosionele ondersteuning wat hulle in die gemeenskappe waar hulle woon benodig. KANSA se doel is om te verseker dat kankeroorwinnaars en hul geliefdes nie kanker alleen in die gesig staar nie; dit is hier om hulle deur elke stap van die siekte te ondersteun.

Gashere en -vroue kan ook hulle eie temas kies, of Cuppa gebruik om ’n spesiale dag te vier deur byvoorbeeld ’n ‘Verjaardag-Cuppa’ of ‘Vrouedag Cuppa’ te hou. Die gashere en -vroue kan self besluit hoe hulle dekor, drankies en peuselhappies by die tema aansluit.

KANSA wil vir Five Roses as die amptelike teeborg vir Cuppa for CANSA bedank – hulle borg weereens tee vir elke geleentheid, skep bewusmaking deur middel van hul sosiale media platforms en borg pryse vir vanjaar se Gasvrou-kompetisie.

Beperkte uitgawe Cuppa for CANSA handelsware is te koop beskikbaar en maak die ideale geskenk vir Cuppa-gaste. Die 2022-Cuppa bekers is in vier pragtige kleure, verbind aan die tema, en kos R60 elk. Die pragtige hoofbedekkings kos R55 elk.

Cuppa gashere en -vroue kwalifiseer om vir die nasionale Cuppa for CANSA kompetisie in te skryf en staan die kans om fantastiese pryse te wen insluitend Body Kind sportbra’s geborg deur bounti, asook airfryers  Die gasheer of -vrou wat die meeste fondse insamel wen ook ’n spesiale airfryer.

Snyders sluit af, “Dis geen wonder dat Cuppa For CANSA een van die hoogtepunte op die KANSA-kalender is nie. Die geleentheid bring mense op ’n prettige manier saam en gee aan hulle die geleentheid om ander te inspireer en ’n verskil te maak in die lewens van diegene wat deur kanker geaffekteer word deur ons sorg- en ondersteuningsdienste. Ons hoop dat jy vanjaar jou plaaslike Cuppa-geleenthede sal bywoon.”

Together Again with Cuppa For CANSA

Together Again with Cuppa For CANSA

Afrikaans  Media Release

27 July 2022 – Every year, CANSA runs the ever popular Cuppa For CANSA (Cuppa) campaign, across South Africa. The aim is to socialise and have fun with family, friends or colleagues at a Cuppa event while raising funds for CANSA to continue delivering its care and support programmes to those affected by cancer. Participants may either host a Cuppa event or attend as a guest.

#CuppaForCANSA #CANSACares #CANSACareAndSupport #TimeToTakeHeartTogether #FiveRosesSA

The theme for this year’s Cuppa is ‘Time To Take Heart Together’. CANSA’s National Sustainability Manager, Anita Snyders, explains, “After two years of hosting virtual Cuppa events, we’re so excited to come together with loved ones, friends, and colleagues, not only to spend time with one another, but also to show our hearts by supporting the fight against cancer.”

The theme also has a deeper meaning representing the importance of the power of togetherness. “Cancer is not a disease to be fought alone, and cancer patients (Survivors), loved ones and caregivers need our support and encouragement,” Snyders added.

“CANSA invites you to host your own Cuppa event. The first step is to register as a host, on the Cuppa For CANSA website or email adewitt@cansa.org.za – registration is open to individuals as well as Corporates. A regional CANSA staff partner will contact you to discuss details about your event such as the date and venue, if you would like to arrange a cancer survivor or celebrity guest speaker, as well as help you with invitations and relevant marketing materials,” Snyders continues.

Hostesses can host events under this year’s theme ‘Time to Take Heart Together’ and share CANSA’s online support groups and resources to encourage those affected by cancer. CANSA is committed to connecting people facing cancer with information, day-to-day help as well as emotional support they need in the communities where they live. CANSA’s aim is to ensure that cancer Survivors and their loved ones do not have to face cancer alone; it’s here to support them through every step of their cancer journey.

Alternately, hostesses can choose their own theme, or even use Cuppa to mark a special day by hosting a ‘Birthday Cuppa’ or ‘Women’s Day Cuppa’. It is up to the hosts, to tie in aspects such as décor, beverages, and snacks with the theme.

CANSA is thankful to Five Roses, who is the official Cuppa For CANSA tea partner and have come on board once again by sponsoring tea for each event, raising awareness through their social media platforms and sponsoring gifts for this year’s Hostess challenge.

Limited edition, Cuppa For CANSA, merchandise is available to purchase and make the ideal gift for Cuppa guests. The 2022 Cuppa mugs come in four gorgeous colours, linked to the theme, and are R60 each while the beautiful Headwear is R55 each.

Cuppa hosts are eligible to enter the national Cuppa For CANSA competition to stand the chance of winning prizes that include sponsored Body Kind sports bras by bounti and air fryers.

Snyders concludes, “It’s easy to see why Cuppa For CANSA is one of the highlights on the CANSA calendar as this event brings people together in a fun way, giving them the opportunity to inspire and make a difference to those affected by cancer by enabling our care and support programmes. We hope you will support your local Cuppa event(s) this year.”
