TWO boot scootin’ Bouvard women have created 300 copies of their own self-published Step-by-Step recipe book with the intent to sell and send all proceeds to Cancer Council Australia.
Helen Scott (64) and Margaret Gibbs (65), along with their friends from Secret Harbour’s line dancing group Steps in Line, meet for afternoon tea and share recipes every three weeks.
Since Ms Scott’s sister and Ms Gibbs’ brother were diagnosed with cancer, they decided to create a recipe book made of the group’s shared recipes to help fund cancer research.
“We both thought why don’t we create recipe books, sell them, and give the money to the Cancer Council,” Ms Scott said.
“We’ve registered to give all proceeds to the foundation.”
Ms Scott said the 82 recipes were created by the women in the Steps in Line boot scooting group.
“All the boot scooters wrote the recipes,” she said.
“The recipes are something you can cook every day like slices, biscuits and soups.”
Ms Scott launched the book, for $5 each, at her Bouvard home on Monday .
“We’ve had lots of orders already and we only just finished the book,” she said.
“We’re hoping to raise at least $1500 and then donate every dollar to fund cancer research”.
Helen and Margaret will rely on social media and word of mouth to advertise their cause.
“We hope friends, daughters, anyone will purchase them,” Ms Scott said.
The recipe book can be purchased at Port Bouvard Recreation and Sporting Club.
