Staff at the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) baked up a storm in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness month, October.
The Team of keen bakers exceeded the amount raised at Aldermaston last year, raising almost £1300.
The pink event took place at the Aldermaston AWE site with staff enjoying cakes and cupcakes – head to toe in pink. For a small donation staff were able to grab a cake or biscuit to have with their morning coffee or afternoon tea break.
Caroline Mills who organised the event at AWE Aldermaston said: "I am delighted with the fantastic support we have received again this year with the Breakthrough Bake Off. The research carried out by the Breakthrough Breast Cancer Charity is so important in helping to fight this dreadful disease affecting both men and woman. It is vital that we continue to hold events like this as often as possible and I am very grateful to all those who gave their support."
Michele Maidment, AWE Community Committee secretary said: "AWE is committed to supporting local and national charities with donations, sponsorship and practical help. We are proud of our staff who continue to support the important work the charities undertake."
