Saturday 1st March, Balgowlah Bunnings
It’s game-on for the Great NPC Bake Off and we need volunteers to lend a hand to bake more than a few yummy cakes and goodies.
Friends have rallied to organise a cake stall fundraiser at Balgowlah Bunnings on Saturday 1st March. The catch is that we now need to GET BAKING.
Our event will raise money for the Australian Niemann-Pick Foundation, which is seeking assistance in raising funds for a specific medical research project.
Rare Disease Day is on 28 February, so what better time to raise awareness as well as a few dollars to fund research into Niemann-Pick Disease Type C (NPC).
How can you help? We need you to bake like crazy and then drop off your scrumptious homemade treats to Balgowlah Bunnings between 9:00-9:45am that day. Or donate a cake you’ve bought.

Did you know?
There are fewer than 15 Niemann-Pick Disease Type C patients in Australia.
Worldwide, only 500 people have been diagnosed with NPC.
The value of shining a spotlight on this rare disease can’t be underestimated.
