Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses are proudly supporting the Salvation Army Project 614 – Night Café, a safe space in Melbourne for those in need.

Through the introduction of the Brendan Nottle Gingerbread campaign in late 2018, Ferguson Plarre managed to raise a whopping total of $30,000 in just 9 weeks.  $1.00 was donated from the sale of every gingerbread made in the likeness of Salvation Army’s Major Brendan Nottle.  

Our support continues throughout the year with various campaigns dedicated to donating funds from sales of our much-loved products. We aim to raise $100,000 for the Salvos by the end of 2019.

During the Easter period, $1 from the sale of every pack of Traditional Hot Cross Buns will be donated to the Salvos. Our CEO Steve Plarre and Major Brendan Nottle have also teamed up to create Melbourne’s first ever Hot Cross Morning Tea.

Melbournians are encouraged to host their own Hot Cross Morning Tea between Monday 15th  through to Thursday 18th April. Hot Cross Buns can be purchased at any Ferguson Plarre Bakehouse across Melbourne, or ordered online via our website. From Wednesday 10th April Ferguson Plarre’s Traditional Hot Cross Buns will be available to purchase from the front of the Salvation Army in the CBD at 69 Bourke Street, Melbourne; with $1 from every sale donated to the Night Café.
