SPRINKLE SOME CHANGE - THE PINK BUN CAMPAIGN is almost here!
From Thursday, nearly 600 Bakers Delight bakeries will join forces with their local communities to raise $1.5 million for Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA).
Last year's record-breaking campaign raised almost $1.8 million for women, men and families affected by breast cancer - What an incredible achievement it was!
This year the campaign will run from 21 April to 11 May and we are delighted that there are so many ways members and communities can get involved. For those wanting a sweet treat, bakeries will of course be selling Pink Buns throughout the campaign. We're also inviting our members to visit their local bakery to purchase a paper Pink Lady silhouette and leave a tribute or message of support. Every cent goes directly to BCNA to help us reach out target! This year the campaign will run from 21 April to 11 May and we are delighted that there are so many ways members and communities can get involved.
