Baking a Difference for Red Puppy Bikkie Day

Millie Wilton and Olivia de Lautour from Room 22, are organising this fundraiser as a homework task.  Our class is helping out by cooking biscuits for them. 

Room 22 are getting out their mixing bowls, popping on their aprons and whipping up some puppy-shaped biscuits for the Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind (RNZFB) Red Puppy Bikkie Day.

Red Puppy Bikkie Day, now in its third year, is part of the RNZFB’s annual Red Puppy Appeal to raise funds to support RNZFB guide dogs.

Millie and Olivia will be selling puppy-shaped biscuit during morning tea break, outside the Food Tech Room on Thursday the 4th, 11th and 18th of April.  The cost of each cookie will be $2.00.

Thank you for your support.
