Scones, quiches and tasty slices are among the delicious recipes a group of senior Australind residents have put together in an effort to raise money for the Cancer Council WA.

SwanCare Australind Rise Retirement Village residents collated more than 60 much-loved family recipes into a self-published cookbook, Cooking for a Cause.

The cookbook is being sold as a prelude to the group’s 2017 Biggest Morning Tea fundraising campaign.

Neighbours Janice Harewood and Kaye Scott are the driving force behind the annual fundraiser at the Australind village, raising more than $11,400 in three years.

Mrs Harewood said cookbook contributors were pleased the publication was already proving popular among friends and neighbours.

“The cookbook is our way of making a difference to the lives of the many West Australians who are diagnosed with cancer every year,” Mrs Harewood said.

Mrs Scott said residents enjoyed putting the cookbook together.

“It’s definitely been a labour of love and now we just hope it’s a recipe for fundraising success,” Mrs Scott said.

Cooking for a Cause is available for $10 at the Australind Rise village.
