Great Pink Bake Off

Great Pink Bake Off

Archant

This year leading charity Breakthrough Breast Cancer is recruiting an army of bakers to fire up their ovens, hit the kitchen and give breast cancer a good beating in the first ever Great Pink Bake Off.

More women than ever are being diagnosed with breast cancer so Breakthrough Breast Cancer wants local communities to whip up some support to help fund their life-saving research.

On Friday October 18 simply gather your friends, family and colleagues to bring their baked goodies and ask everyone who attends to make a donation. If October 18 doesn’t work for you then you can hold a Bake Off anytime, anywhere, during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s a piece of cake!

“We hope everyone gets involved with this year’s Great Pink Bake Off,” says Sian Fraser, head baker for Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s Great Pink Bake Off. “Not only will you have a delicious time, you’ll also be raising vital money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s life-saving work”

“The need for Breakthrough’s research has never been greater; breast cancer is still the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK, affecting 50,000 women every year and killing 1,000 every month. So we are urging everyone to raise some dough and help us beat breast cancer.”

Breakthrough Breast Cancer is the UK’s leading breast cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through improving early diagnosis, developing new treatments and preventing all types of the disease.

“Everybody knows someone affected by breast cancer – so I’m urging everyone to join the Great Pink Bake Off and get baking to help support this fantastic organisation,” says Jane Asher, baking expert and ambassador for Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s Great Pink Bake Off.

“Simply ask your friends and family to bring their homemade treats, make a donation and decide whose bake is best. As well as having lots of fun, it’ll be satisfying to know that all the money you raise will go towards Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s vital work.”
