Treat yourself to pink buns to help breast cancer cause
GET your buns down to Lismore or Ballina’s Bakers Delight stores and buy a pink bun to raise money for cancer.
It’s the last chance to support the bakery franchise’s three-week campaign to raise $1.5 million for Breast Cancer Network Australia.
All funds raised during the Pink Bun Campaign go to BCNA.
Caitlin Hurst has been the owner of the Bakers Delight in Lismore Central for only six weeks, but she was keen to get on-board with the challenge.
“Every store tries to get number one in the state and sell as many buns as they can,” she said.
“I didn’t have a lot of prep time but it’s worth it to try and get as many proceeds as possible.
“It’s for a great cause. A lot of people are affected by breast cancer. It runs in my family as well.”
BCNA chief executive Christine Nolan said money raised supported services including the My Journey Kit.
“(The kit is) a free resource for people newly-diagnosed with breast cancer,” she said.
“(It) reaches over 80% of Australians affected by breast cancer.
“We want to reach 100% of people diagnosed and our work is not done until we reach everyone.”
Ms Nolan said it was predicted that nearly 16,000 Australians would be diagnosed with breast cancer this year alone.
The $1.50 pink icing finger buns are available at the stores until 6pm in Lismore Central and 5.30pm in the Ballina Fair Shopping Centre.
