Buy a pink bun to join fight
BREAST Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) is urging people to get down to their local Bakers Delight until May 23 and buy a special pink-iced finger bun. The Pink Bun Campaign is now in its 14th year and Bakers Delight bakeries across Australia are aiming to raise a record $2 million. Each bakery donates the proceeds of every pink bun, the cost of the ingredients and staff. Over the 17-year partnership, Bakers Delight has raised more than $18 million to support BCNA's work.foodfesv
