A BORDER bakery chain is thinking pink this month to support people affected by breast cancer.

Until the end of May, 100 per cent of the pink bun sale proceeds at Bakers Delight stores in Albury and Wodonga will be donated to Breast Cancer Network Australia.

Customers can also buy special carry bags, write messages of support on Pink Lady silhouettes or make a donation in the tins on the shop counter.

The money raised will support network services like the My Journey Kit, an information pack provided to people newly diagnosed with breast cancer. More than 12,000 My Journey Kits are distributed free of charge annually.

Over the past 11 years, more than five million buns had been baked and sold during the annual NSW and ACT campaign, helping to raise millions of dollars.

Breast Cancer Network Australia chief executive Christine Nolan said this year in Australia 48 women every day would be told they had breast cancer.

“We know that breast cancer doesn’t just affect the individual,” she said.

“It has a ripple effect on families, friends and colleagues.”
