Cup­cakes to help cute and cud­dlies

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

HAVE a sweet tooth?

Head down to PRD­na­tion­wide Whit­sun­day to­day to sat­isfy your crav­ings all while fundraising for a good cause.

As part of Cupcake Day for the RSPCA, PRD is sell­ing freshly baked cup­cakes ev­ery day for the next four weeks and any­one is wel­come to come and have a taste.

Sales sec­re­tary Carinda Ivens was the first of her co­work­ers to do some bak­ing and said it felt great to sup­port such a good cause.

“We just wanted to get more in­volved in our lo­cal com­mu­nity,” she said.

“We de­cided this is a re­ally great cause and it’s close to our hearts be­cause we all have pets.”

Cupcake Day is an op­por­tu­nity to raise funds for the aban­doned, in­jured, ne­glected and sick an­i­mals who come to the RSPCA for care each year.

Although of­fi­cially held on Monday, Au­gust 15 any­one can take part when­ever they please through­out the month of Au­gust.

The real es­tate team will go by a ‘cupcake ros­ter’ to de­ter­mine whose turn it is to sup­ply the tasty treats.

“We’re do­nat­ing our time and money to buy ingredients and bake the cup­cakes,” Ms Ivens ex­plained.

Ms Ivens said they would be happy with any amount they raised but had a goal of at least $500 in mind.

“More would be awe­some but we’re go­ing to be re­al­is­tic and aim for $500 at the mo­ment,” she said.

Cup­cakes are $3 each and all money raised will be do­nated di­rectly to the RSPCA.
