The Old Cannon Brewery is turning pink in October for the Suffolk group of Breakthrough Breast Cancer to raise awareness of the vital research, campaigning and education work carried out by the pioneering charity.
Throughout Breast Cancer Awareness month the pub in Cannon Street, Bury St Edmunds, will be presenting a pink-inspired food and drink menu.
It will also be hosting a Breakthrough Bake Off on Friday, October 17 offering an array of homemade cakes as well as an opportunity to try your hand at cupcake decorating in the snug with Chloe’s Baking.
The month-long activities come after Hannah Clark, landlady at the Old Cannon, raised £2,000 after taking part in this year’s London Marathon.
Having set herself a pre-marathon personal goal to raise £100 per mile, Hannah is now determined to exceed her original target.
She said: “Our aim is to raise as much awareness as possible – whilst supporting a fantastic charity. We have even changed our logo pink!
“We are planning a very special pink food and drink menu and for every pink item that is ordered, we will make a £2 donation to the charity. There has never been a better reason to indulge in the likes of a delicious autumn raspberry mousse.
“We have great customers, who I know will support us throughout the month.
“And we have something really special planned to end our month of fundraising in the style that my fundraising began. You will need to keep an eye on our social media closely to find out what we are planning.”
Laura Hudson, chair of the Suffolk group of Breakthrough Breast Cancer, said: “I could not be happier with the fantastic support and pink ideas we have from The Old Cannon team.
“I would like to say a huge personal thank you to them. There will be pink galore, but amongst the fun and delicious goods, we will also be able to spread the word about the life saving work that Breakthrough do.”
