THE Australian Red Cross Natimuk Unit will host a morning tea to satisfy any Wimmera sweet tooth at its annual Big Cake Bake next week.
The bake, at 10am on Wednesday, will include a range of treats, along with a mystery feature cake.
The event will also feature a doll display by Natimuk Primary School student Annabella Fort.
Unit treasurer Glenys Fort said money raised at the event would go towards Red Cross charity programs.
She said she hoped to top last year’s total by raising more than $100.
“There are so many terrible things happening in other parts of the world that we can help with,” she said.
“We are very lucky here in Australia and we have needs but there are often some bigger needs elsewhere in the world.”
Annabella, 11, Mrs Fort’s grand-daughter, has collected more than 200 dolls during the past three years.
The collection includes Barbies, culture dolls, a Shirley Temple doll and an original American doll worth more than $200.
Annabella will pick the most valuable to display on Wednesday.
“It will be nice to have them out where other people can enjoy them as well,” she said.
“I get them from opportunity shops, garage sales and sometimes my family will get them for me too.”
Annabella said while she didn’t have a favourite doll, she expected the Shirley Temple doll to catch people’s eyes.
The Big Cake Bake will be from 10am at Natimuk’s NC2 building.
