SOME 20 people gathered to hone their baking skills and support a noble cause under the “Bake For A Cause: Cookies Workshop”.

With the guidance of experienced mentors, they produced 4,000 cookies that were given to SMA Tarbiah Islamiah, Penang Cheshire Home and St Nicholas Home for the Blind.

The programme held at Dewan Desiran Tanjung, Tanjung Tokong was organised by the Penang Youth Committee (JBPP) Pulau Tikus, Bangkok Lane Village Community Management Council (MPKK) and Belia Harmoni Pulau Pinang (BHPP).

BHPP president Aiman Fitri said such workshops could nurture social responsibility among the youth.

JBPP Pulau Tikus chairman Arief Ferdaus expressed satisfaction with the programme outcome.

“We aim to foster a culture of giving back among our youth and this event is just the beginning,” he said, highlighting JBPP’s commitment to similar future endeavours.

Meanwhile, Pulau Tikus assemblyman Joshua Woo said the initiatives resonated deeply with the spirit of giving.

“The youth exemplify the true essence of community service by intertwining learning with altruism,” he added.
