Desserts at your doorstep

Koha Kai staff members (from left) Teresa Hammond, Keri Jones and Corrina Holland will help make desserts as a part of Pavluber.

A DOOR-TO-DOOR dessert service will make Christmas sweeter for some members of the community.

Pavluber organiser Leon Hartnett said the event was created seven years ago by James McRobie and Liv Cochrane.

It was now supported by Green Light Innovations and Koha Kai.

The event encouraged people to order desserts online with all proceeds raised going towards Koha Kai’s annual kaumatua Christmas feast.

“All of the money will go to pay for a special Christmas celebration for the elderly and our kaumatua who have had a challenging year in this year of Covid,” Mr Hartnett said.

This year’s Pavluber offered a selection of desserts which could be pre-ordered from an online menu.

“People don’t even need to leave their homes… they can order online,” he said.

“However, due to the Covid situation, we ask people to pay in advance this year.”

Dessert options include pavlova, carrot cake, banoffie pie and a selection of cheesecakes.

“Desserts cost $10 each and there is 50 of each dessert on offer, which will be allocated on a first-ordered, first-served basis,” he said.

“People who may have been unlucky and missed out on their first choice will be offered an alternative if available.”

Prepared at Koha Kai at Elmwood Gardens, a fleet of members from Next Rotary Generation, and Sunrise Rotary clubs will deliver the desserts throughout the city and Bluff on Thursday, November 25, from 7pm-8pm.

If patrons wanted to further extend Christmas oodwill in the community, the Pavluber team had partnered with The Spirit Army which meant patrons could buy a dessert for another family.

“Simply select the Spirit Army option on the order form and we will deliver it to a family that needs support.”
