Auckland bakers are being called to roll up their sleeves to help vulnerable animals.

The SPCA is appealing for keen cooks to take part in its annual Cupcake Day fundraiser on November 2.

The event has raised nearly $3.2 million over the years, helping tens of thousands of animals that come through SPCA's doors each year in need of care, shelter and veterinary treatment.

Budding chefs are invited to whip up a batch of cupcakes before selling them at work, school and to family and friends.

Last year saw 1092 home bakers and 641 businesses get involved.

SPCA CEO Andrea Midgen said recent events had taken a big bite out of the charity but here was something tangible supporters could do to help.

Funds raised will be used to aid in rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing animals in need around the country.

On site there was a prickly situation that needed sorting.

Blackberries, as well as brush and scrub, had overtaken a lot of the area on this slope growing quite high and losing good grazing area. Using a standard brush cutter would mean being up close to the prickly stems and would normally take much longer to clear. The Agria was used to brush cut the area, dealing easily with the woody stems and mulching it down.
