Pink food and drink will be on the menu at the Old Cannon Brewery this month in a bid to raise funds for a breast cancer charity and mark Breast Cancer Awareness Week.

The Bury St Edmunds pub, on Cannon Street, will be supporting Breakthrough Breast Cancer who carry out vital research, campaigning and education work.

They are also hosting a Breakthrough Bake Off on October 17, offering homemade cakes and the opportunity to try your hand at cupcake decorating.

The pub landlady Hannah Clark 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.”

Laura Hudson, chair of the Suffolk Breakthrough branch, said: “I could not be happier with the fantastic support and pink ideas we have from the Old Cannon.”
