Buy your hot cross buns from Bakers Delight bakers and help them raise more than $8000 for the Children’s Hospital Foundation during ‘Bundraiser Day’ on Saturday, 5 March.
More than 48,000 hot cross buns will be baked and $1 from every six-pack of hot cross buns sold will be donated to the Children’s Hospital Foundation to support patient entertainment at the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital.
Patient entertainment aids healing and makes traumatic and sometimes long-term stays in hospital more bearable for sick kids and their families. The Children’s Hospital Foundation supports sick kids and their families when they are in hospital by offering a range of programs and activities including bedside play and pet therapy that provide welcome distractions and entertainment for all.
Children’s Hospital Foundation CEO Cameron Prout said, “When kids are sick or injured, it turns their whole world upside down. Every sick child deserves a happy, healthy life and with the support of Bakers Delight and their customers, the wonders will never cease and the care will never stop.”
Harry Proskefalas, Bakers Delight Regional Manager Queensland added “Every year we are humbled by the generosity and charitable spirit of our customers who come out in support of Bundraiser Day and I’m sure this year will be our best yet. Easter is by far our busiest time of the year, so it’s a great opportunity to give back to the hospital and make a difference to the lives of children in our local community. We encourage all our customers to make their hot cross bun purchase count on Saturday, 5 March.”
For 36 years Bakers Delight bakers have been baking fresh hot cross buns from scratch, each day in the lead up to Easter.
