It’s getting busy for the folks at the Royal Flying Doctors Women’s Auxiliary Club where the ladies have one eye on Christmas and their famous Christmas pudding fundraiser.
And thanks to the Demo Club the puddings look set to be in safe hands.
A few months ago, AUX secretary Dinitee Haskard applied for a grant from The Demo Club for a new commercial MixMaster to help produce the over 2000 puddings the ladies will make this year.
The Barrier Social Democratic Club was more than happy to come to the party to cover the cost of a new mixing machine valued at $7000.
Coral Ford, a board member at the Demo Club and lifetime member of the RFDS Women’s Auxiliary Club, said she was delighted her two passions could unite to help keep this Broken Hill tradition running smoothly.
When we visited, they were preparing a small batch for the Mundi Mundi Bash that will be available at the Bruce Langford Visitor Centre, ahead of gearing up for the Aux’s Christmas run, which will begin production at the end of August.
