Celebrating a successful first year in business the Brunswick Bakery decided it was time to create a record for the most amount of people on a river, in a donut, at the same time and raise some money for the Brunswick Heads Surf Life Saving Club. This was how between 400 to 450 hot pink inflatable donuts came to be floating down Simpson Creek on Saturday.
‘It was a great day, the weather was perfect,’ said local Emma-Kate Francis who went on the float with her six year old son Curtis.
Raffles, live music, face painting and good vibes were the highlight of the day.
‘It all turned out really well,’ said organiser Mel Hogan from the bakery.
‘We are planning to do it each year with different coloured donuts and maybe even a conga line,’ she said with a laugh.
Norco and local coffee roasters Zentvelds coffee donated all the milk and coffee so that 100 per cent of the sales went to the Surf Life Saving Club and all the registration fees also went straight to the club.
‘We raised over $2,000 for the Surf Life Saving Club,’ said Mel happily.
Music, art and a great vibe made the day a huge success – the question now is will they break their own record next year?
