Baking from the Heart co-ordinator Rhiannon Horrell with some of the treats baked by group members for hospice patients.
Whether it was raspberry slice, lamingtons or cupcakes, one thing was certain — the enticing array of baked items assembled at The News office yesterday was made with love.
Yesterday marked Shepparton cooking group Baking from the Heart’s first cooking day of the year.
A colourful selection of items were assembled before later being distributed to Goulburn Valley Hospice patients.
Group co-ordinator Rhiannon Horrell said more than 30 people visited The News to drop off their baked goods.
‘‘We ran a story in the Shepp News in October-November and it had a big reaction,’’ Ms Horrell said.
‘‘Because we didn’t have a baking day over Christmas I was a bit worried the momentum may die off — but today we’ve had a massive response.’’
The group bakes every six weeks, with yesterday’s bake-off taking on an Australia Day theme.
Ms Horrell said the number of hospice patients who received the food varied each time.
‘‘Sometimes there’s more, sometimes there’s less,’’ she said.
‘‘This time around we’ve got more hospice patients and I think there’s such a variation of patients — there’s some who are elderly and some who are younger.
‘‘It’s nice to do something for them.’’
