Central and North Burnett Times - - WELCOME -

FAIRHOLME Col­lege Toowoomba has done its bit to show Biggen­den farm­ers do­ing it tough there are people who care.

The Year 11 home eco­nom­ics co­hort gladly col­lected do­na­tions of bis­cuits and in­gre­di­ents as part of the Baked Re­lief cam­paign.

It has been sup­ported by the Queens­land Ru­ral, Re­gional and Re­mote Women’s Net­work, who helped co-or­di­nate the drop-off point through

Biggen­den Post Of­fice.

Stu­dents also wrote mes­sages of sup­port.

Teacher Jody Friend said more than 10kg of flour and 10kg of rolled oats had gone into the lat­est batch of Baked Re­lief bis­cuits.

Biggen­den mail con­trac­tor Veron­ica Jensen said it felt good to be able to help deliver the cakes and bis­cuits.

“It wasn’t about how large or small the parcels were but the thoughts be­hind it,” Ms Jensen said.

“Also the pretty paper and coloured rib­bons along with the hand-writ­ten notes showed the stu­dents had put a lot of car­ing thoughts into the project,” she said.

“My hus­band Cliff also re­ceived some pos­i­tive feed­back from the men at the sa­le­yards.”

Do­na­tion re­cip­i­ent Michelle Radel said she was feel­ing blessed.

“People who don’t even know us but care, it's re­ally lovely,” Ms Radel said.

Chris­tine Holder said it was a won­der­ful sur­prise.

“I felt re­ally choked up, it was so nice of them,” Ms Holder said.
