Registration is very easy. Just fill in this short registration form and we’ll send you out your welcome pack (including your free puppy-shaped bikkie cutter). We’ll also be in touch with lots of delicious recipes and useful tips to help you make the most from your Bikkie Day.

When will I receive my welcome pack?

Your welcome pack should be delivered within 10 days of registering although rural addresses may take longer. If you haven’t received your pack after 10 days, please give us a call on 0800 120 254.

Where should I sell my bikkies?

At work, at school, at home, at a community group – wherever you think people would like a bikkie and are feeling generous. Don’t forget to ask for permission before baking. If you wish to sell your bikkies in public then you will need to speak to your local council.

How do I raise money?

There are lots of ways you can raise money from Bikkie Day but the easiest way is to ask for donations in exchange for the bikkies you bake. People can give you cash or donate to your online fundraising page – you’ll even get donations from people who don’t want a Bikkie… just for taking part. Visit our page of fundraising tips for lots more ideas.

How much money do I need to raise?

There is no minimum target but most Bikkie Bakers should easily be able to raise at least $200. All of the money you raise will make a huge difference. If you’re worried about raising money, give our friendly Bikkie Team a call or check out our fundraising tips.

Do I have to use an online fundraising page?

No. You will have a page created for you when you register but you don’t have to use it if you don’t want to. Your online page is a great way of collecting donations from people who have no cash or can’t make it to your party. You’ll also find that people are a lot more generous with online donations.

Will my supporters get a tax receipt?

Anyone who makes a donation to your fundraising page will automatically receive a receipt via email.

What is my Bikkie Day reference number?

Your Bikkie Day reference number will be on all of the emails correspondence you receive from us about the event. If you’re not sure what it is then give us a call on 0800 120 254 and someone from the Bikkie team will be happy to help you.
