More than 2.6 million regular finger buns, or 1.6 million mini buns.

That’s what Bakers Delight outlets across the country are hoping to sell to raise $2 million for Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA), and Dubbo’s Orana Mall outlet is doing its part.

The store and staff have gone pink for the Pink Bun campaign, with all proceeds from the sale of mini and regular finger buns between now and May 23 going to BCNA.

People can also purchase a Pink Bun carry bag with 100 per cent of the sale going to BCNA, buying a Pink Lady silhouette and writing a message of support to be displayed at the bakery, or by making a donation in the tins on the counter.

Breast cancer survivor Donna Falconer said the funds raised would help BCNA continue to advocate on behalf of breast cancer patients.

The money would also support the provision of BCNA’s My Journey Kit, an information pack provided to people newly diagnosed with breast cancer.

More than 12,000 kits are distributed free of charge every year.

“The My Journey Kit was like a bible when I was going through treatment,” Ms Falconer said.

“And there’s the pamphlets for family and friends, so they know what to do when you’re going through treatment.

“Bakers Delight have been a great supporter this year, and they’re hoping to raise $2 million.”

The finger buns are on sale until Wednesday, May 23.
