Raising dough for disabled dogs

Raising dough for disabled dogs

A team of 30 baking enthusiasts are hitting the kitchen this week to raise money for injured and disabled dogs.

The third annual BakeOFF for Charity sale, which helps a different cause every year, will raise funds for the animal welfare group Three Legs Good this Sunday.

Organiser and illustrator Ly Yeow, 26, said she wanted to help dogs and the charity stood out to her as being "very different".

A video on the group's website featuring a three-legged dog running like any of its four-legged pals even brought tears to her eyes.

"For disabled dogs like that we don't have enough resources for them," said Ms Yeow.

The part-time art teacher and her team hope to raise about $10,000 for the disabled animals, which are placed in foster homes to recuperate and await adoption after being rescued.

Visitors to Sunday's sale can expect treats ranging from sweet delicacies like Earl Grey macarons and apple rose tarts to savoury dishes such as shepherd's pie and more exotic choices like Sweet Potato Pandan Cake.

Customers must make a $20 donation at the door in exchange for a voucher worth 20 bake points that can be used to redeem the goodies. Prices range from two bake points for a macaron to up to seven for a slice of cake.

Money will also be raised through the sale of T-shirts and artwork from local illustrators.
