The Red Cross has designated Friday, October 27 as “Big Cake Bake” day, with the proviso that branches can choose events on other days. Accordingly, the Glen Innes branch will have a stall in the town centre from 8.30am this Friday, October 20.

They call it a chance for a “guilt free treat” – you’ll be able to eat high calorie cake but know it’s in a good cause.

Annette Law said: “The Red Cross is always here whether it’s during a crisis or giving someone the tools they need to build a better life.

“Our street stall is one of thousands of Big Cake Bake events being organised around Australia this October. “We’d be grateful if our community joined the fun.

“Every dollar raised will go to support the work of the Red Cross, helping people overcome crises, big and small.”

The Red Cross said: “All donations raised from Big Cake Bake will support the everyday work of Red Cross, including to help people overcome crisis in Australia and beyond - whether that's helping to build healthy communities, giving someone a safe place to stay, or supporting people as they recover from an emergency.”

“Big Cake Bake is a delicious reason to get together with colleagues, friends and family.”
