A GROUP of volunteers joined the Robin Hood Foundation team for a fun ‘Baking-It-Forward’ evening at Gecko Culinery Adventures recently.

These ladies and gents showed off their baking talents by baking hundreds of amazing treats baked for RHF’s Bless-a-Granny & Grandpa 2015 campaign in between the flour-wars and pinching of the cookie dough.

If you're looking for a fun year-end corporate or group event, and a different way to give back this Christmas, get in touch with Gecko on to book Baking-It-Forward and get baking for a great cause - All baked goodies from Baking-it-Forward are being donated the Robin Hood Foundation’s sixth Annual Bless-a-Granny & Grandpa campaign for visits for tea time treats for the elderly.

“The elderly folk are so grateful for their much anticipated gifts but are even more appreciative of the time taken to make a fuss over them,’’ comments Kim Griffith Jones, co-ordinator of the Robin Hood Foundation.

“For many living in old age homes this is the only gift and only visit they receive the whole year round. We encourage individuals and corporates to get involved in any way they can,’’ added Jones.

For more information, or to receive a personalised wish list in order to purchase a gift valued at R150, please contact Kim on 076 612 9060 or email
