Dubbo's Charles Sturt University Christian group members donned their baker's hats and got out their mitt's and whisks for a good cause recently.
Group Member Josiah Clarke held a cake store with the help of fellow members and friends to raise funds for Compassion Australia.
Compassion Australia is a Christian holistic child development and advocacy organisation that works in partnership with local churches to foster the spiritual, economic, social, physical and emotional development of children living in extreme poverty.
"Compassion believes that the best way to support the child is through the local church," Mr Clarke said.
"The idea is that the church knows the communities needs better than anyone else and so is well placed to cater to each child's individual needs."
Charities provide children with meals, tutoring, and assistance with education.
The store raised $223.40.
Sponsors also get an opportunity to write to their sponsored child to encourage and inspire them, and to share their lives with them.
"This hope is powerful and shows these children that the God who flung stars into space loves them enough to die in their place and longs to share eternity with them in heaven.
"The funds we raised will go to Compassion's 'most needed' fund which assists these children 'where it's needed most' - this might involve supplying assistance to communities who've been struck by a natural disaster."
