BH bakers battle breast cancer
Tuesday, 29th April, 2014
Local breast cancer survivor Kerri Baker and Bakers Delight Broken Hill are rolling up their sleeves to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer during the annual Pink Bun campaign.
From April 24 to May 14, Bakers Delight Broken Hill are joining 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 new line is already proving popular with staff reporting they sold out of around 50 buns by 10am Monday morning.
Bakers Delight is aiming to raise $1.5 million to help BCNA’s work to ensure that women diagnosed with breast cancer, and their families, receive the very best support, information and care possible.
Kerri said the Bakers Delight Pink Bun campaign is an easy and fun way for the local community to show their support for the local women and families affected by breast cancer.
“Seeing the lengths that Bakers Delight Broken Hill has gone to this year in support of women like me who have been diagnosed with breast cancer is just amazing,” she said.
“Last year the campaign raised over $1.2 million nationally so on behalf of all the women in this community living with breast cancer, I’d like to thank Bakers Delight for their unwavering support.”
On Saturday, May 10 members of the BH Breast Cancer Support Group will be at Centro Westside to help support the Bakers Delight team and sell BCNA merchandise which will also be available at AgFair.
Customers are also encouraged to leave a personal message for women in their community on a ‘Pink Lady’ paper silhouette purchased for a gold coin donation. Messages of support or in memory of a loved one with breast cancer will be displayed in each local bakery during the campaign.
