There's just 26 sleeps until Christmas and Gerry Brownlee is already getting into the festive spirit by making Christmas cake.
It's a wonderful time of year for a lot of Kiwis but some still have it pretty tough and one of the charities who will be lending a helping hand to those in need this Christmas is the Salvation Army.
Gerry has even made a video about how the very impressive cake was made.
"Bid up large for this. It's quite heavy, quite dense, very fruity and tasty. It will be a great buy ... and the money goes to a wonderful cause," he said.
If the winner lives in Christchurch, Gerry has said he will deliver the cake himself!
