The UQ Women’s Collective held a bake sale last Tuesday to raise funds for Ovarian Cancer Australia, a worthy organisation that supports women diagnosed with the cancer, and their loved ones. We missed Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month in February, but wanted to raise some money regardless.

Every day three women in this country are diagnosed with ovarian cancer. That means every year, almost 13,000 women are diagnosed.

We raised $190.60 on the day, but we’re adding an extra ten dollars to donate to OCA. Thanks to all the Collective members who baked something special. There were a lot of teal coloured cupcakes! Thank you also to all who bought something delicious.
