Christmas cake charity

PROJECT Veivuke is seeking assistance from the public for funds to sponsor children's education expenses through their Christmas Cake sale.

The project was founded by Beryle Maud Wilson and her family 15 years ago to help keep children in school.

"We started out by paying for one student's fees at Draiba Primary School and it has steadily grown to where we are normally able to assist about 14 children annually," said Ms Wilson, who operates a cake business from home.

During this time of the year, she gives a percentage of Christmas cake sales to Project Veivuke.

"Our little home-based business that we have built up over the years was to earn an income for our little family and to help others out wherever we could."
