United to help
When a close friend was diagnosed with breast cancer a few months ago, Murtoa’s Melinda Keel wanted to do something to help.
So she and Angela Morgan of Rupanyup put their heads together and decided to bake up a storm to raise money for National Breast Cancer Foundation.
“We decided jelly cakes are pink for breast cancer, so we thought we’d give it a crack,” she said.
“We put it on Facebook and the orders way exceeded our expectations. We’ve got about 70 dozen to get through.”
Mrs Keel said the pair decided to split the orders into three lots.
“We can’t get 70 dozen out in one go,” she said.
“We’re slowly getting through them and people are loving them. It’s been good.”
National Breast Cancer Foundation funds ‘game-changing’ breast cancer research with money raised entirely by the Australian public.
The foundation’s aim is to work collaboratively and creatively to achieve its mission of zero deaths by breast cancer by 2030.
