Hot cross bun fundraiser a sweet deal for PMH

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Near You -

NOTH­ING beats the smell of a freshly baked hot cross bun, ex­cept per­haps the smiles on chil­dren’s faces when they bite into one, says Princess Mar­garet Hos­pi­tal (PMH) Foun­da­tion chief ex­ec­u­tive Denys Pearce. Bak­ers De­light fran­chisees, PMH Foun­da­tion staff and mas­cot Stitches the Bear will hand-de­liver hot cross buns to hos­pi­tal pa­tients, vis­i­tors and staff from 9am to 10.30am to­day. The spe­cial visit will launch the of­fi­cial Bundraiser Day this Satur­day, when Bak­ers De­light bak­eries across WA will do­nate $1 from ev­ery six-pack of hot cross buns to the PMH Foun­da­tion. Funds raised will go to­wards a PMH re­search project in­ves­ti­gat­ing how ado­les­cents with di­a­betes tackle anx­i­ety and emo­tional vul­ner­a­bil­ity. The re­search will ben­e­fit Bundraiser Day 2015 am­bas­sador Larissa Farr (9), who has a rare form of life-threat­en­ing di­a­betes called di­a­betes in­sipidus that stops her body from ab­sorb­ing wa­ter. “We’re en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to stock up on their Easter hot cross buns from Bak­ers De­light on March 14, when your ‘dough’ can re­ally go a long way to help care for chil­dren at PMH,” Ms Pearce said.
