Pink-haired baker Ed nears target for cancer dough
TURNING himself into a pink-haired comic around town has paid off handsomely for Grafton Bakers Delight franchisee Ed Piper.
Just over two weeks ago, Mr Piper had the girls at Skizzas hairdressing salon dye his scanty locks and beard bright pink to raise money for the Breast Cancer Network Australia. Now he is on track to hit his target of $10,000 sometime on the weekend or soon after.
When that happens the pink hair will disappear entirely as the Skizzas girls move in to shave his head. Mr Piper said his shop had been selling between $100 and $120 worth of pink finger buns daily - 100% of these sales go to the campaign - but it had been donations from the community that had raised the bulk of the money.
"The schools have been great. South High have donated $500, Grafton Primary have put in $300 and Grafton High is still raising money,"
