Help raise some dough for a children's hospital near you
Bakers Delight is a large Australian owned bakery franchise chain with outlets in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada (in Canada as COBS Bread). It was established in 1980 as a single bakery on Glenferrie Road in the Melbourne suburb of Hawthorn, Victoria. (Wikipedia)

Bundraiser Day is the day that the heavenly smell of freshly baked hot cross buns will fill the air throughout Australia and New Zealand, as nearly one million hot cross buns are baked and sold. Bakers Delight bakeries across Australia and New Zealand donate $1 from every six-pack sold to local state children's hospitals for the purchase of essential medical equipment and to help fund hospital programs.

Over 600 Bakers Delight bakeries had their most successful fundraising days in 2013, raising approximately $140,000 to help sick children.

The goal this year is to raise $150,000, with the funds to benefit eight hospitals around Australia, who will purchase essential medical equipment and resources.

Stop in at your local Bakers Delight on Saturday, 5 April, to contribute to this great cause, and fill your belly with a traditional Easter treat at the same time. Or hey, use your purchase to make this Hot Cross Bun Bread and Butter Pudding recipe.
