Pink bun fight
Tuesday, 7th May, 2013
Breast cancer survivor Kerri Baker has joined forces with Bakers Delight in its Pink Bun campaign.
This month Bakers Delight joins more than 600 Bakers Delight bakeries across Australia when they turn pink and donate 100 per cent of the sale of their Pink Finger Buns to Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA).
The bakery is aiming to raise $1.2 million to help BCNA ensure that women diagnosed with breast cancer, and their families, receive the best treatment, care and support possible.
Mrs Baker said the Pink Bun campaign was an easy and fun way for people to support women and families affected by breast cancer.
"Last year the campaign raised over $1 million nationally for women like me, and our families, which makes such a real difference to our experience with breast cancer," she said.
"The support and information available to women diagnosed has improved so much since BCNA began 15 years ago, and that's possible because of the generosity of Bakers Delight and their customers.
"On behalf of all the women in this community living with breast cancer, I'd like to thank Bakers Delight for their unwavering support."
The money raised will also support BCNA's information resources, including the My Journey Kit, a free resource for women newly diagnosed with breast cancer.
As well as selling Pink Buns, the staff will be dressed in pink and collection tins will also be on the counter for donations.
Customers are also invited to leave a personal message on a Pink Lady silhouette for a gold coin donation. The message may be in support or memory of a loved one with breast cancer in their family or community. The silhouettes will be displayed during the campaign.
