Cuppa for a Cure
To mark World Leprosy Day we’re asking you to host a Cuppa for a Cure morning or afternoon tea in 2017.
Hosting a Cuppa for a Cure tea party is a great way to have fun, raise awareness of leprosy and raise money for those affected by leprosy and disability.
Morning or afternoon tea, anywhere or anytime. Hold it as part of a special event or celebration, a gathering with your friends at home, at church or in your group. We can provide you with the resources and newsletters you need. Even your tea and coffee.
Host a Cuppa for a Cure and change lives
You and your friends can raise much needed funds to help free people affected by leprosy, like Binta, from the devastation of disability, isolation, poverty and rejection.
Have a Cuppa for a Cure tea party. To register your event and request resources get in touch with Pam Lake, The Leprosy Mission Australia Relationship Manager!
