A coffee franchise in the Bay of Plenty is joining a nation-wide initiative to raise money for breastcancer.

Robert Harris cafes will be donating 10 per cent of any meal purchase during May to the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation's Pink Ribbon Appeal.

One in nine New Zealanders will be affected by breast cancer in their lifetime, with over 3000 women being diagnosed every year.

Robert Harris franchise manager David Thackery said they were thrilled to be involved for the third year running with the Pink Ribbon breakfasts.


They aimed to raise $100,000 in total by the end this year's campaign.

"Robert Harris continues to support the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation in our fight against breast cancer. The research funded as a result of Pink Ribbon Breakfasts will help save Kiwi women," said Evangelia Henderson, chief executive of New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.
