The Great NPC Bake Off… call for bakers

Saturday 1st March, Balgowlah Bunnings

Dear friends

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.

The value of shining a spotlight on this rare disease can’t be underestimated.

Tell your friends and spread the word. Talking about it will help more people know about NPC.

  1. I pledge to bring some gluten-free cakes, choc-chip cookies, brownies & lolly cups! With the help of my neighbour Bec, my sister Mez, and Matt’s mum Maree and aunty Pauline – THANKS! x

  2. Will make a selection of goodies – choc/coconut cupcakes, fruit loaf, and some shortbread biscuits. Hopefully don’t burn them..Ha! Also plan to buy a lot of cakes from the stall as have a husband with very sweet tooth!

  3. Hi Ali, sorry I didn’t manage to send in baked goods yesterday as intended (somehow thought it was today! Very silly mix up w dates on my part). You and your little lad have been on my mind since Nicole kindly sent me your blog notes. I have never forgotten the last time I saw you and a brief chat we had about Ed. Thank you for inviting us to help fund such important research. In the morning I will donate what we can. Your little champ is lucky to have such a beautiful, smart mummy. My family and I wish you all well in every sense of the word. With a big hug, hope to see you again one of these days, Bec Russell (Hammond)
