You Like Cupcakes, Right? – Charity Drive
20th April 2016 · IT Talent
This month we came together to raise some money and awareness for the fantastic charity Breast Cancer Now.
Breast Cancer Now is the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, created by the merger of Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
Breast cancer is currently the most common form of cancer in the UK with 50,000 women diagnosed each year. Breast cancer unfortunately comes in many different forms and around 12,000 women sadly will die of this disease each year.
Thanks to research however, more and more people today are surviving breast cancer and 80% of women who are diagnosed with breast cancer will still be alive five years after their diagnosis.
After reading about the disease and the charity, we thought our office could do with a little pink! So we got our pink on and baked some cakes and had a charity bake sale! Our two offices Reading and London went head to head to see who could raise the most money, as well as purchase cakes throughout the day and we’re pleased to announced we raised over £260 for the charity!
A big thanks to our directors and consultants for the delicious cakes and prizes. Also a very big thank you to all the team at Breast Cancer Now for their support and guidance for this event!
