Peter Reidy | CEO of Fletcher Construction

Took my Executive Team to Eden Park to make cookies with the incredible team behind The Cookie Project – a business worthy of your support which supports Kiwis with disabilities into well paid jobs. Purpose is the glue that holds people together and they don’t come any more purposeful than Eric and his team. We rolled, shaped and learned a lot. And then we ate the biscuits! Eric, Andrew, Lawrence, Praveen, Stacy and team – an enormous thanks to you for the inspiring 90 – your warmth, energy, enthusiasm and baking skills were quite something to see. But even more importantly you taught us a lot about how to bring real purpose to our work and the success that true purpose can bring. I know many of our team will be back with their families to experience The Cookie Project again.

The Story Behind the Win My Cookie Challenge

Without a doubt, we know that when visitors come to our kitchen and bake cookies with us, their eyes are opened to the ability of our bakers and the quality of our product.

We receive multiple requests of people wanting to check out our kitchen and meet our bakers each week – so we thought, how could we make this into a fun and educational experience, and create another employment opportunity for our bakers while we’re at it?

So, having seen how fast, accurate and hard-working our bakers are when making cookies, we thought a bit of friendly competition could clearly showcase just how capable people with disabilities can be!

And that’s how the Win My Cookie Challenge started.

Go up against our bakers and see if you can take their cookies home. But be prepared as you’ll be up against some tough competition… Will you accept the baker’s challenge?
