In 2014 our lives were changed forever when our precious sister Kirsten took her own life.
Kirsten’s initials are K.A.W and she came up with the name HrdKAW and she always told us she would someday have a bakery called HrdKAW Cakes, and number plates with HrdKAW on them. She will never get to realise her dream, but as a family we decided to keep her dream alive, and keep her close to us, and name our business in her honour.
