Aurora’s ANZAC biscuit bonanza

7 June 2023|Community News| Off Comments off on Aurora’s ANZAC biscuit bonanza|

Local disability provider Aurora Disability Services recently held its annual ANZAC biscuit-baking sessions, making more than 40,000 of the tasty treats in just 12 days in April.

The biscuit baking is one of Aurora’s largest fundraising events, with the biscuits packaged and sold throughout Tasmania in many local shops, businesses and offices.

Labor MPs Ella Haddad and Josh Willie visited Aurora to sample the results.

“It was a well-oiled machine, with everyone playing their individual part to turn raw ingredients into thousands of delicious ANZAC biscuits,” Ms Haddad said.

“It is so impressive that in just 12 days leading up to ANZAC Day, they baked and distributed a whopping 40,600 ANZAC biscuits – absolutely smashing last year’s record by more than 5000 biscuits.

“It is supportive organisations like Aurora Disability Services that are the backbone of the NDIS.

“They know their participants so well and support them in every aspect of their training, work and lives.”

Mr Willie said the work being done at Aurora was life changing for so many in the Tasmanian community.

“It was quite something to see the sheer volume of output from everyone and to taste the delicious results of their baking efforts,” he said.

“It was a privilege to see firsthand the difference Aurora Disability Services make in people’s lives.”
