This Kildare cafe are going pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Fiona Frawley

Sásta by the River have come up with a great way to raise funds for Breast Cancer Ireland.

The Maynooth cafe will be spreading awareness and raising funds with the help of their pink drinks both hot and cold. I know what you’re thinking – how many pink drinks can one cafe have? But Sásta have a seriously impressive selection, with beetroot lattes, rose syrup hot chocolate, summer berry ice tea to name a few. And for the month of October, €1 will be donated to Breast Cancer Ireland for every pink beverage purchased.

Drinking rosey hued beverages sounds appealing enough as it is, but knowing that you’re contributing to such an important cause in the process makes it even better. Sharing the news of the fundraiser on Insta, Sásta wrote:

Every October, people around the world show their support for everyone affected by breast cancer. Join us this October in raising awareness.

Since opening last summer, Sásta by the River have become synonymous with colourful coffees. Their impressive, healthy menu boasts lattes of the Ube, butterfly pea, golden and matcha variety, all brightly coloured and about as Instagrammable as they come. But this pledge for Breast Cancer Awareness is all the more reason to turn your latte pink this October.
