Some of you may know, my 'real life' job is Fundraising Manager at Breakthrough Breast Cancer in Scotland. It's an amazing charity, funding life saving work across the UK, including here in Edinburgh and in Dundee.
To my delight, the new breast cancer awareness month (October) fundraising campaign was launched last week and the theme this year is....The Great Pink Bake Off! My work and personal lives have finally collided in a cake filled frenzy! Finally, I get to talk about cake at work and not be told to shut up!
So, here's how it works. Friday 18 October is the date (or any date really!). It can be at school, at work or at home with friends - anywhere. You might be a member of a local baking club, golf club or other social group. Let's face it - cake is always welcome! So, ask your friends to get baking and then ask people who attend to make donations for these goodies. Simple right?!
The money you raise will go towards funding world-leading breast cancer research. Guilt-free cake - what could be better!?
Please register today for your free fundraising pack by visiting http://pinkbakeoff.org/ and anything you can do to encourage your foodie friends to hold their own bake off events would be amazing. You can follow the charity @BreakthroughSco on twitter using the hashtag #GreatPinkBakeOff.
Go on. Fire up your oven, get baking and raise some dough for a good cause!
