Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses launches “Brendan Nottle” Salvation Army Gingerbread Men

Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses has teamed up with the Salvation Army to create a gingerbread man in the likeness of Melbournian of the Year, Major Brendan Nottle. $1 from the sale of each Gingerbread Man will go to the Salvation Army Melbourne Project 614 Night Café – Safe Space; providing a safe place for people in the City of Melbourne.

3AW’s Neil Mitchell initiated the project on air by asking for a bakery to create a Gingerbread Nottle for sale to raise funds for the Salvos. After taking a call from 4th generation baker Steve Plarre, the Gingerbread Nottles went from fairytale to reality. To help support the Salvation Army’s Project 614 Night Café – Safe Space project, Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses will be donating $1 from every Brendan Nottle Gingerbread Man sold in-store or online across its 75 locations.

The Salvation Army’s Major Brendan Nottle works passionately with those who live on the fringes of society. The Melbourne Project 614 provides support by supplying meals, clothing, counselling and pathways including; training, volunteering, employment and accommodation options.

Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses CEO, Steve Plarre, said “as a 5th generation Melbourne based family business, we are most certainly the beneficiaries of the great work that the Salvation Army do and we are incredibly proud to be raising funds for the Salvos Night Café and those people it supports.”
