Original Foods Baking Co. (OFBC) has raised over $79,000 for St John over the past two years.

Since 2017, $1 from every OFBC Red Velvet round cake has gone to St John through their ongoing ‘Cake for a Cause’ campaign.

“We are honoured to be able to show our gratitude and support of the incredible work that St John does in helping save hundreds of lives every year,” said Jane Mayell, OFBC managing director.

“OFBC has become a firm favourite among New Zealand families, especially when it comes to celebrations, so we’re thrilled to have raised much-needed funds for St John through our Cake for a Cause campaign,” continued Mayell.

“As a charitable organisation, St John receives around 72 percent Government funding to run the emergency ambulance service, but that money does not cover the cost of new buildings or equipment,” said Debbie Pipson, fundraising manager for St John in the South Island. “We rely on amazing supporters like OFBC, as well as the community, to help raise funds for vital life-saving equipment.”
