23 May 2016 – It’s that time of year again where we can all help fight cancer by raising cups of tea or coffee in support of CANSA’s annual Cuppa For CANSA campaign which launches on 8 June 2016.

The Shoprite Group is supporting Cuppa for CANSA for the fourteenth year running. Having already helped to raise over R1 million through its in-store Cuppa events, as well as donating R94 000 to CANSA Care Homes that house patients undergoing cancer treatment at oncology clinics far from their homes – the Group is set to continue the tradition of acting for change this year.

Research has shown that rooibos contains anti-oxidants that help fight cancer and thus CANSA is proud to welcome Glen Rooibos tea as the official tea supplier for the Cuppa For CANSA events.

“Cuppa For CANSA is always grateful to have the support of sponsors such as Shoprite and Glen. We’re very excited to see what 2016 has in store,” says Maria Scholtz, CANSA’s Head of Sustainability.

Proceeds from the 2016 Cuppa For CANSA campaign are aimed at keeping CANSA’s nine Mobile Health Clinics on the road. The clinics travel to remote areas throughout South Africa to make people aware of the benefit of early detection and provide cancer education and screening.

Launch events sponsored by the Shoprite Group take place on 8 June 2016 at CANSA’s Head Office in Bedfordview, and at the CANSA Durban, Bloemfontein, Cape Metro and Port Elizabeth Care Centres; with CANSA’s Mobile Health Clinics present.
