save lives with cake - breast cancer awareness

Breast Cancer kills 1000 women every month in the UK. So every penny raised is a penny towards a cure. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and they always plan such fun events to take part in. There are two ways you can help raise money this month. The first is to take part in the #GreatPinkBakeOffThis year 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. They're calling on local communities to whip up some support to help fund our life-saving research by heading over to their site www.pinkbakeoff.org and get planning for their bake off on Friday 18th October. (You can do any date that suits you, before or after the 18th)

I actually signed up to this a month ago and will be holding our very own bake sale at my mums work, a school. We're having it tomorrow as they finish school on the 18th so I spent the day baking some pink Fairy Cake!  


If you don't have time to set up a bake off, please could you help spread the word by tweeting the following:

TLC (Touch Look Check) campaign helps make sure women up and down the UK know how to stay breast aware. The earlier breast cancer is found the better the chances of beating it – which is why it is vital that women make regular checks.
