Pink beard and buns put Ed on way to $10k for charity

HE MAY be a blokey bloke with a beard but Ed Piper knows more than most the impact breast cancer can have on a family.

The Grafton Bakers Delight franchisee lost his sister and niece to breast cancer and another sister is now being treated for it.

This experience motivated him to think pink with the aim of raising $10,000 to donate to the Breast Cancer Network Australia.

So copping a bit of shtick for his pink beard doesn't bother him.

"Everybody who makes a joke, it's okay just as long as you put money in the tin," he said. "I think we went alright (yesterday), we went close to $1000."

Mr Piper has enlisted the help of some high-profile Valley men including Arthur Lysaught, Mayor Richie Williamson, Member for Clarence Chris Gulaptis, Aaron, Sam and Cody Hartmann and a couple of school principals.

Bakers Delight will also donate 100% of the sale of it's pink finger buns to the BCNA until May 22.
