Bethanie – WA’s largest not-for-profit aged care and retirement living provider – has launched ‘The Big Bethanie Bake Off 2015’.
Following on from the success of last year’s inaugural event, which saw hundreds of entries from statewide, ‘The Big Bethanie Bake Off’ returns for a second year continuing the aim of closing the intergenerational gap between our seniors and youngsters.
To take part, school children and Bethanie residents must submit their family recipes online in the hope of being selected as a finalist to compete in a live bake off at Have a Go Day.
School-aged children will be asked to research their grandparents’ background and discover their favourite recipe. The children will then need to reproduce the dish – with the aid of a grandparent – and submit their application for a chance to win some amazing prizes.
Each submission will be judged on the creativity, nutritional value, and complexity of the recipe, along with the story behind their secret family recipe.
“This is an excellent opportunity to close the intergenerational gap in a fun, safe and social environment,” tells Bethanie CEO, Chris How.
“At Bethanie, we strive to keep our residents and clients social, active, and provide engaging activities to improve their well-being. What better way to do just that than by providing a platform that allows our clients to both bake and interact with West Australian children.
“We are very excited to see some healthy and wholesome ideas poured into the pots and pans for an exciting Bake Off,” continues Mr How.
Four Bethanie residents will be chosen as finalists to compete against four chosen school students at the Grand Finale on Wednesday 11th November 2015 for a live bake off at Have a Go Day, Burswood Park.
To enter, visit www.bigbethaniebakeoff.com and complete an online entry form. Close date for entries is 25th September 2015.
