Pilbara News - - Pilbara News - Pe­ter de Krui­jff

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.
