Proving a mouthwatering success was Saturday’s vegan bake sale at Bendigo Wholefoods. Cupcakes, pies, sausages rolls, lamingtons and more, all made without animal ingredients proved where there is a will there really is a delicious way. And with just over $970 dollars raised for the not for profit animal sanctuary Edgar’s Mission, the day was a winner all round.
Organized by Maiden Gully resident Zerin Knight, the bake sale was part of a worldwide initiative which saw over 150 bake sales taking place across six continents and all raising funds for their chosen causes.
“I am deeply touched that Edgar’s Mission and its 250 plus rescued animal residents will be the beneficiary from today’s event” said Edgar’s Mission founder and director, Pam Ahern.
Pam, and a most amicable sheep named Timmy, who is one of the star ambassadors of the sanctuary, were on hand to talk about the work of this much loved sanctuary. Timmy certainly proved a crowd favourite and even managed to lure some treats his way.
