"Many thanks to all the Benalla residents who have bought my home-made goodies and made generous donations," Ms Monger said.

"The money will be much appreciate­d by the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre who, in the absence of any government aid, support refugees with essentials including food, accommodat­ion, English lessons, medical needs and legal assistance.

"The focus of the ASRC at the moment is Afghan refugees."
