Life’s no piece of cake but you can make it sweeter
A GROUP of Maryborough high school students will spend the weekend baking hundreds of patty cakes to be given out to business owners in the CBD next week.
St Mary's College spokeswoman Melissa Wareing said students would hand out the homemade treats as part of the school's promotion of pay-it-forward thinking.
"The students had noticed the effect on local businesses in the CBD with the floods and wanted to do something," she said.
Ms Wareing said the aim was make 500 patty cakes.
The initiative coincides with Catholic Education Week and is part of the school's participation in the global campaign Random Acts of Kindness.
Ms Wareing said students were encouraging the community to take part.
