A group of Karratha children have spent part of their school holidays helping those devastated by bushfires in the east.

The Smith siblings, Kenzie, 12, Bailey, 11, Nylah, 8, and Wyatt, 6, used their baking skills to raise $615 for the World Wildlife Fund, NSW Rural Fire Services and the Community Enterprise Foundation.

They sold hundreds of homemade cupcakes, brownies and cinnamon scrolls while Kenzie offered face painting services as well.

Kenzie said they were looking for something to do in the school holidays. “We wanted to help out the firefighters,” she said.

“We all agreed to do it.”

Wyatt said he wanted to do the bake sale to help save the koalas and was surprised they raised so much money.

Mum Bec Smith said she was proud of her children.

“I love that they know even though they are young they can have an impact and build community spirit and I am proud of them, they did really well,” she said.

“It’s really nice as well just trying to get them to have that sense of compassion and empathy and use their skills to give back.”

Generosity runs in the family, with the bake sale coming a year after the siblings spent their school holidays last January fostering pets from SAFE.
