As October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, why not show your support for the annual campaign by enjoying a Pink Afternoon Tea with some friends or family? The occasion will serve as a timely reminder for your loved ones to perform a breast examination, while also providing space for conversations around breast health—over delightful sweet and savoury treats, no less. Plus, every purchase of a set may include proceeds towards a local organisation to support research and initiatives to raise awareness and prevent breast cancer.
