Country cancer patients have been treated to a special Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea thanks to the generosity of Uccello Kettles.

The Uccello team created a special morning tea for guests at Cancer Council Western Australia’s Crawford Lodge in Nedlands complete with gourmet treats, and served to them with the innovative Uccello Kettle which was designed by local Perth man Andy De Petra to help those unable to lift a kettle.

Uccello’s founding director, Jonathon Billington, said he and his team enjoyed extending their hospitality in this unique way and said he’d like to see as many people as possible support Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.

“This is a very important initiative so I hope people will join in and ‘Make Your Cup Count’ to help fight cancer,” Mr Billington said.

As part of Cancer Council WA’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea this year, Uccello Designs will contribute $5 from the sale of each kettle purchased in support of ABMT and $5 discount to all purchases from people registering to hold their own event.

Cancer Council WA Fundraising Manager, Betty Cottrell, said Uccello’s support is very welcome.

“It’s wonderful to see a local company support Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea which is about coming together, having a cuppa with friends and raising awareness and money for Cancer Council to fund research and particularly our support services,” Ms Cottrell said.

The kettle itself was borne out a need to safely and steadily lift and pour the contents of a hot kettle, and allows for a ‘power-steering’ pour action without removing the kettle from its cradle.

“We hope that our kettle will remind others that sometimes the simplest of tasks can be extremely difficult, but if we all put our hands and minds together, we can come up with ways to make the journey just that little bit easier,” Mr Billington said.
