Bak­ers raise dough for breast cancer

Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

Kar­ratha res­i­dents stop­ping by Bak­ers De­light on their lunch break may have no­ticed the shopfront look­ing a lot pinker than usual lately.

The Kar­ratha City bak­ery has been decked out in chains of pink pa­per dolls to pro­mote the na­tional fran­chise’s Pink Buns cam­paign, whereby 100 per cent of the money spent on spe­cially made pink fin­ger buns go to­wards na­tional support char­ity The Breast Cancer Net­work Aus­tralia.

Bak­ers De­light Kar­ratha trainee man­ager Steph Ea­ton said the store baked 120 pink buns per day for the cam­paign.

“We usu­ally sell out of pink fin­ger buns, and we’ve emp­tied our do­na­tion tin once al­ready,” she said.

“I re­ally like that we do this cam­paign. I think it’s just good aware­ness.”

Bak­ers De­light joint chief ex­ec­u­tive Les­ley Gille­spie said she was proud to have con­trib­uted to the sale of more than 5 mil­lion pink buns, rais­ing more than $15 mil­lion, in the 11 years the cam­paign had been run­ning.

“This event is very much part of the Bak­ers De­light cul­ture and we want to thank all our cus­tomers for giv­ing gen­er­ously to a fan­tas­tic cause each year,” she said.

BCNA chief ex­ec­u­tive Chris­tine Nolan said with nearly 16,000 Aus­tralians di­ag­nosed with breast cancer per year, the char­ity was “so grate­ful” for the support of Bak­ers De­light.

The Pink Buns cam­paign be­gan on April 21 and ends to­day.
