The Gift of Giving – Baradine Biscuits

Baradine is a small town in north western New South Wales, which in 2016 had a population of 760 people It is thirty minute drive north of Coonabarabran and is known as the Gateway to the Pilliga, a beautiful forest of native birds, animals and trees.

Unfortunately, like much of the east of Australia, the area is experiencing a severe drought which touches everyone. We wanted to help and show the people of the town and surrounding area that we care about them.

Then we had the idea about Baradine Biscuits. Each week a batch of homemade biscuits will be baked for purchase by staff and students of Bower Place. The biscuits are made according to traditional tried and well-loved recipes and contain the best ingredients. A different biscuit was made each week, with suggestions of any favourites.

ALL proceeds went to the people of Baradine and together we raised $1,263.00 which will pay for Learn to Swim Lessons for children of St John’s School at Baradine. The money will cover lessons, pool entry and transport and even leave some over for the school holiday programme. The school has made a video of the children to thank us and when it arrives, we will share the link.
