Bakers Delight customers and Franchisees around the country have dug deep to help us raise more than $225,000 for the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.
Throughout the campaign, one dollar from every 6-Pack of Hot Cross Buns was donated by to the cause and then matched dollar for dollar by Bakers Delight.
The Australian Red Cross will be using these funds to support their emergency teams on the ground, working in evacuation and recovery centres, providing psychological first aid as well as comfort and support.
They will be providing emergency cash grants for people who have lost their homes to the fires, to help them cover immediate expenses. They are also investing in and planning recovery programmes that are tailored to each community, building on their strengths, their unique needs and their capabilities.
On behalf of the wider Bakers Delight team, we thank all of our valued customers for getting behind this important campaign and for their continued support for all Australian impacted by these fires.
