Its Breast Cancer Awareness month in October and Avon, are urging people to get baking for breast cancer. They have teamed up with Breakthrough Breast Cancer to release an Avon Breast Cancer Crusade Baking Set. The aim is to encourage people to host afternoon parties or bake sales to help raise money and awareness for people fighting the illness and for research into it.
The set costs only £5 of which 25% is donated directly to Breakthrough Breast Cancer. It includes 6 silicone cupcake holders, a large heart cutter and a pink ribbon cutter, all in the ‘think pink’ colour scheme. It’s available via Avon catalogues or on their website.
Breast cancer affects nearly 48,000 people in the UK every year, meaning we probably all know someone, be it friend or family, who has been effected by this illness in some way. I feel it’s important to help raise awareness and holding a cake or cookie sale; sharing a few home baked treats with friends and family seems a great way to go about it. I find even the most serious of things easier to discuss over a coffee, cake and a chat.
