Pink ribbon brekkies go down a treat
Breakfast customers at Tokoroa’s Robert Harris Cafe have been eating for a good cause.
During May the store was one of 45 Robert Harris Cafes nationwide that raised $30,000 for the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.
Tokoroa store manager Steve Fletcher said 10 per cent of all the breakfasts sold was donated.
‘‘Plus we had a few items for sale and a lot of people if we gave them change they’d just stick it in the donation box.’’
He said there was an extremely positive response from the Tokoroa community.
The money was raised as part of the NZBCF’s Pink Ribbon Breakfast campaign.
The funds will be used for research into new targeted breast cancer treatments.
‘‘This was an excellent result for us, very much due to the strong support of both the Robert Harris head office and individual store owners, who really got behind Pink Ribbon Breakfast,’’ chief executive at the Breast Cancer Foundation Van Henderson said.
