Pink bun raising dough for cancer

BUN lovers will be doing their bit for breast cancer research this month.

Until May 23, Bakers Delight is donating every dollar from its sales of pink buns to the Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA).

Network liaison officer for the Ipswich region Colleen Julian said the Ipswich Breast Cancer support group was affiliated to the BCNA.

"The women of Ipswich and surrounding areas are given wonderful support by this organisation," Ms Julian said.

"They supply each person diagnosed with breast cancer a My Journey kit, which has all the information they need to help them with their journey through their treatment.

"This is funded with the help of Bakers Delight all around Australia."

Hopes are that the Pink Finger Bun campaign will raise $1.2 million this year.

Bakers Delight customers are also encouraged to leave a personal message on a Pink Lady paper silhouette.

The message may be in support or memory of a loved one with breast cancer.
