Momentum Collective abilities and wellbeing cooking group delivered delicious treats to fire fighters in Casino. Photo supplied.

Members of the Momentum Collective abilities and wellbeing cooking group in Casino have been doing their bit for the community by helping to support local firefighters.

Yesterday the collective, which is a group for people with disabilities, went into the kitchen to create delicious treats to help sustain firies in Casino yesterday to show ho much they appreciate our firefighters, many of who are volunteers.

The local fire crews are currently fighting a massive fire that has already burnt four homes and 40,000 hectares of land out at Drake in our local community area.

The cooking group baked Jam Drop biscuits and Chocolate Brownies then packaged them into containers and delivered them to the Casino Fire Station.

The gesture was greatly appreciated and two firemen on a break accepted the donation on behalf of the crews working on the frontline.
