Morning tea with a twist: Red Cross Big Cake Bake 2017

Our local branch of the Red Cross always put their own stamp on the organisation’s annual nationwide fundraiser – the Big Cake Bake.

They don’t just sell cakes.

The dedicated committee always organise a themed morning tea, and spend hours creating a setting that befits the occasion.

And, this year is no exception with the ladies busy making elaborate decorations for a quirky ‘Mad Hat’ morning tea party.

Long-term member, Susan Ginns, has been busy making cut out hats that will adorne the walls of the Country Women’s Association (CWA) Hall on Wednesday, October 18.

Ms Ginns says doors will open at 10.30am and they would like to extend an invitation to the public to come and join them as they raise funds for disaster relief.

“Last year we had a full-house and we are hoping to fill the hall again,” she says.

“You can come along and have morning tea, or just buy a cake, or you can do both.”

For just $10 guests can select from a luscious section of home-made slices and cakes to eat with their tea of coffee.

There will also be entertainment.

So join in the fun and wear a hat to the event, or just bring one along to decorate your table.

Ms Ginns says the Singleton community has always been very supportive when it comes to their continued fundraising efforts.

“The money we raise really does make a difference as it support humanitarian relief efforts all over the world,” she says.

Every day Red Cross helps people overcome crisis in Australia and beyond – whether that’s helping build healthy communities, giving someone a safe place to stay, or supporting people  as they recover from an emergency.

And, their work is made possible thanks to the generosity of people who go the extra mile by raising money or making donations to Red Cross through initiatives like Big Cake Bake.
