We might be midway through October but it’s not too late to still lend your support to Breast Cancer Awareness month. We round up five things you could eat and do to support the cause.

Eat:

Afternoon Tea by the Bay at The Landing Point, The Fullerton Hotel

Have afternoon tea while overlooking the calm waters at Marina Bay. The Pink Afternoon Tea experience here includes three tiers of bite-sized sweet and savouries such as Tasmanian salmon blini with cherry shrimp and Red currant Valrhona Manjari chocolate tart.

Each set comes with a complimentary glass of Sangre de Toro non-alcoholic rosé wine and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Breast Cancer Foundation.

After, choose from two options for mains: Pan-seared Halibut with Pink Cauliflower Purée and Beetroot Orange Espuma or Black Angus Beef Tenderloin with a duo of Pink Parsnip, Truffle Irish Potato topped with Morel Jus. Then end with three tiers of sweet pastries including the Litchi Strawberry Choux and Rose Macaron.

Likewise, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Breast Cancer Foundation.
