Leading the cravings for all things sweet in the Myall is Tea Gardens resident and president of the local branch of the Red Cross, Jennifer Wenham.

Jennifer is putting out the call for volunteers to bake or donate to the worthwhile initiative.

“It’s been going for a number of years now and it’s one of the Red Cross’s most successful fundraisers,” Jennifer said.

“The community is wonderful, they may not be Red Cross members but they donate cakes, they bring them in and say my mum was in the Red Cross and it’s in memory of her.”

“People bring in two cakes and they buy two cakes, made by someone else,” Jennifer said with a laugh.

Jennifer said it doesn’t have to be a cake, it can be a slice, biscuits or scones, the more the merrier.

The ‘Big Cake Bake’ has become one of the major fundraisers on the Red Cross Calendar.

All money raised goes to helping people in crisis across Australia.

On Saturday 21 October, volunteers from the Red Cross will be set up at the Myall Quays Shopping Centre from very early in the morning, the event coinciding with monthly market day.

“Last year we planned on going until 2pm but we were sold out by midday,” Jennifer said.

The Tea Gardens/Hawks Nest Branch of the Red Cross has been going now for 82 years.

Jennifer likes to think they’ll make a century and to that end new members are always welcome.

The Red Cross meets the fourth Monday of every month at the Masonic Hall in Myall Street, from 10am.
