Bakers Delight tastes good and feels better

bakers-delight-logoBakers Delight is encouraging Kiwi’s to use their loaf to help bring back smiles to women with cancer.

From 24 April – 14 May, all 31 Bakers Delight bakeries across New Zealand will donate $1 from every Cape Seed Loaf and Chia & Fruit Loaf to cancer charity Look Good Feel Better.

Every day, 55 people in New Zealand are diagnosed with cancer. Look Good Feel Better is the only international cancer support charity that provides practical, effective and free services for women and teenagers going through cancer treatment.

Through Look Good Feel Better workshops, thousands of New Zealand women are offered guidance, information and makeup expertise by trained volunteers.

The workshops have a powerful impact on the women who attend, not only on their looks but also their outlook. The volunteers are a source of guidance on the changes that occur from cancer treatment and help to provide renewed strength and a sense of control and normality.

All proceeds raised from the sale of Bakers Delight’s Cape Seed Loaves and Chia & Fruit Loaves directly benefit Look Good Feel Better workshops.

Clare O’Higgins, General Manager of Look Good Feel Better, says the annual support from Bakers Delight outlets nationwide is vital and enables the charity to offer more help and support.

“We really appreciate the long standing partnership we have with Bakers Delight.  With the help of this fundraising support we are working on expanding our programme to more centres so that we can offer support to all New Zealanders with cancer.  The funds raised through this campaign will help us do that,” says O’Higgins.

“Cancer diagnosis and treatment can be all consuming and exhausting,” adds O’Higgins.   “By buying these loaves, New Zealanders are helping us bring back smiles to those going through cancer and their support networks.”

Scott Paterson, Bakers Delight New Zealand Country Manager, says Look Good Feel Better is an important charity close to the hearts of the entire Bakers Delight team.

“With cancer touching the lives of so many New Zealanders, we’re proud to continue our support of Look Good Feel Better for another year and offer our customers an easy and tasty way to get behind this great cause,” said Paterson.
