Tickled pink by sale’s success
Karratha Commonwealth Bank employees raised some serious dough with a bake sale for breast cancer research last Friday.
The branch was coloured pink by staff for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and a table of baked goodies and a 100 square game were the main money spinners in an effort to help out the Breast Cancer Institute of Australia and netted $545.85.
Karratha branch manager Ashley Nock said the local Commonwealth Bank team was proud of its fundraising efforts for BCIA.
“This year marks 20 years of our partnership with BCIA,” she said.
“Over this time, breast cancer clinical trial research has identified new and effective breast cancer treatments and prevention strategies and we’re delighted to play a part in this progress.
“We’re looking forward to continuing our work with BCIA to ensure we reach the ultimate goal of a world without breast cancer.”
The branch has also been selling copies of 2016 Australian Women’s Health Diary, which have raised $11.1 million for breast cancer research since they were first printed in 1999.
