Stripe breakthrough £2,200 fundraising target

Stripe breakthrough £2,200 fundraising target

We’re thrilled to announce that this week we surpassed our £2,200 fundraising target for Breakthrough Breast Cancer!

After pedaling for Scotland last September and wearing our onesies in May, last Friday we joined with our colleagues at Blonde Digital for a final event: the Great Pink Bake Off!

Each member of the team was rallied to dust off their aprons and bake up a treat, with the results sold through a bake sale at Bond No9. From flapjacks and rocky roads to elaborate tiered cakes that would have Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood weak at the knees, the team put on a stellar spread for a great cause.

The total amount raised by the bake sale for Breakthrough Breast Cancer Scotland was £318, taking us over our £2,200 donations target for 2013.

Breakthrough is the UK’s leading charity dedicated to stopping women dying from breast cancer, funding 25% of the UK’s breast cancer research.

A special thanks to Bond No9 for putting on free teas and coffees for our bake sale and to all the local businesses who supported us by coming along and tucking in.

Cat Cubie launches Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s One Day campaign

Scottish stars, mums, aunties, sisters, daughters and husbands have come together to front One Day, a new campaign from Breakthrough Breast Cancer to help save lives of women in Scotland with breast cancer.

The campaign is calling on Scots across the country to choose their own One Day online at, and commit to fundraising for just one day of Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s lifesaving research.

The charity funds the only dedicated breast cancer research unit in Scotland. It costs £2,200 each day for Breakthrough to find new and better treatments for breast cancer here in Scotland.

Supporting the campaign is an emotive short film featuring real people touched by breast cancer including Scottish comedian Susan Calman and former Gladiator and fitness fanatic Ali Paton. All have chosen their special day, shared their story and revealed their One Day wish for the future of the disease to inspire people to pledge their support.
