Cake for Greatness is an initiative I set-up in September 2013 after realising just how many people volunteer and give so selflessly to our community. Everyone knows that Lyttelton is a very special little town and that is not just because of the Port Hills that hug our community or our beautiful harbour, but because of the positive contribution people continue to give, without expecting anything in return.

And so the idea came to me that on my weeks off from the Lyttelton Farmers' Market I should make the most of my time by baking a surprise cake for someone to enjoy by way of thanks for their good deeds. Cake for Greatness is my way of saying thank you to our local individuals, community groups or locally-owned businesses for all that they do. 

Cake for Greatness does not happen without your nominations and is another example of everyone helping each other for a good cause. If you would like to nominate a local group of people, a business or an individual who deserves special recognition in the form of a well deserved treat with their morning cuppa, send your nominations in via my Rushani's Facebook page. Please remember to give specific examples of community kindness/greatness/awesomeness where possible.
