We have welcomed the news that Woodside will continue the role as WA corporate ambassador for Australia's Biggest Morning Tea 2021.
Our CEO Ashley Reid said they were thrilled Woodside was committed to championing this event again in 2021 following their incredible $35,000 contribution to Australia's Biggest Morning Tea in 2020 and encouraged other businesses in WA to follow suit.
"I would like to thank Woodside for showing us their ongoing support during these challenging times," Mr Reid said.
"With many West Australians still feeling the impacts of COVID-19, Cancer Council's Australia's Biggest Morning Tea has never been so important."
"Every day another 33 West Australians will hear the words "you have cancer". Cancer does not rest and neither do we."
"Following a tumultuous 2020, we continue to face the very real possibility of falling short in the funding we need for these critical cancer services, so we thank Woodside for their ongoing support and urge the WA business community to show their support for those affected by cancer during this time.
Woodside's Vice President Corporate Affairs, Sandra McInnes, said the company was proud to support Cancer Council WA during this challenging time.
"Woodside is delighted to be championing Australia's Biggest Morning Tea again in 2021," Ms McInnes said.
"Our involvement in 2021 is more important than ever.
"The Western Australian business community can get behind Cancer Council WA by signing up to host a morning tea. It's one way your company can show West Australians impacted by cancer that they are not alone.
"By supporting the cause, you will be making a difference in the lives of the 12,000 people in Western Australia diagnosed with cancer each year."
The official Australia's Biggest Morning Tea date is Thursday 27 May 2021, however participants can register to host at any time throughout May or June.
This year, Cancer Council hopes to recruit more than 20,000 generous morning tea hosts and raise more than $7 million nationally to help all affected by cancer right across Australia. All donations fund Cancer Council's life-saving cancer research, prevention programs, advocacy and support services.
