Call for puppy bikkie bakers
It’s time to get out the mixing bowls, pop on an apron and whip up some puppy-shaped bikkies for the annual Blind Foundation Red Puppy Bikkie Day.
Red Puppy Bikkie Day is on June 8 and keen cooks are encouraged to ‘‘bake a difference’’ for guide dog puppies by selling puppy-shaped bikkies to friends, work colleagues or classmates.
The event raises vital funds for the breeding and training of Blind Foundation guide dogs.
Last year, hundreds of individuals, workplaces, schools and early childhood centres were involved and this year the Blind Foundation is hoping even more will take on the challenge.
Everyone who registers for the event gets a free puppy-shaped cookie cutter and some great bikkie recipes, including some by celebrity chef and Blind Foundation supporter Nadia Lim.
Blind Foundation chief executive Sandra Budd says the puppies in training are working hard to one day be the eyes of New Zealanders who are blind or have low vision.
Everyone who raises more than $75 will go in the draw to name a puppy.
