The Whyalla Girl Guides will once again allow the community to indulge their sweet tooth at a bake sale this weekend.

The group will be stationed at Old Woolies from 9am to 1pm on Saturday, offering three different kinds of biscuits costing between $3.50 to $4.

The sale will raise funds towards a camp the girls are planning to host later in the year as well as equipment.

District Manager Colleen Pattingale said the sale was a major fundraiser for the guides.

“Last year we made more than $1000 from the biscuits we sold, we’re hoping to reach around about that amount again,” she said.

“We have a camp coming up in Term 3 so we will be looking to make sure all the girls can go to that.”

Mr Pattingale said the fundraiser also taught girls important skills.

“It’s enterprising for them to learn about how we can raise money to support them, they get to learn that biscuits cost money but we can make a profit from them,” she said.

“The only thing different about this year’s sale is that we will be selling at Old Woolies and not at Westlands, we will be selling on the front veranda.

“We will be there for four hours, so we would love for lots of people to visit us and buy biscuits, that would be great.

“The girls really do enjoy it.”

The event will coincide with Girl Guide Biscuit Day, which is a national event held every year.
