Bakers raise dough for breast cancer
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.
Bakers Delight Karratha staff Steph Eaton and Taylah Drechsler are glad to be part of the Pink Bun campaign.
