For those of us not directly affected by the floods here in Brisbane and you are looking for a way to help why not whip up a batch of muffins, cupcakes, bikkies, scones or a slice and drop down to your local SES depot (if safe to do so).
My son turned five today and instead of our usual birthday festivities my children helped me bake dozens and dozens of cupcakes and other baked goods, we made ham and salad rolls by the boot load and mixed up old fashion cordial for all the workers at our local SES.
My dear friend Danielle from Digella Emporium has been busy doing the same. She has started a Baking Revolution! It's called Baked Relief.
Here is a list of SES Centres:
Guyatt Park, Bryce Street, St Lucia
Botticelli Street Park, Botticelli Street, Fig Tree Pocket
Hawthorne Park, Cnr Park and Oak Street, East Brisbane
Perrin Park, Josling St, Taringa
Darra Works Depot, Shamrock Rd, Darra
Morningside Works Depot, Redfern Street, Morningside
Newmarket SES Depot, Wilston Rd, Newmarket (in carpark off Erneton Street)
Zillmere Works Depot, Jennings Street, Zillmere
Stafford Works Depot, Turner Road, Kedron
The tireless workers have been so thankful for the little treats we presented them with today. May their tummies be full and this food help them keep up the tremendous work they are doing.
My husband has spent last night and tonight shovelling sand into bags, doing something to help. He just called me and said everyone is in good spirits and they are making the best of this terrible situation.
My heart is heavy for all my friends that have and will be affected in the early hours of tomorrow morning. Keep safe.
