The team from Letchworth’s Garden House Hospice Care work so hard for our community – so it was nice to see them take a short time-out relaxing at a summer party featuring BBC star Mary Berry.
A delegation from the hospice met the much-loved judge of the hit show Great British Bake-Off having made a few of their own mouth-watering cakes.
Their cupcakes were so good, Mary – who knows a good cake when she sees one – awarded their high-quality offerings second place during a cake-baking competition held at a garden party thrown by the High Sheriff of Herts, Will Hobhouse.
Tina Lewis from Garden House told the Comet: “It was the ‘icing on the cake’ to meet Mary Berry, and to have her sample our cakes that were baked by Roma Hawke, Shirley Hurst and myself.
“I’m glad we didn’t know she was arriving until the day, that would have been extra pressure.
“It was a wonderful day, a great team effort from across the hospice to put on such a wonderful display.
“The florists and gardeners created a beautiful garden display to present the cakes.”
“At Garden House Hospice Care we provide cakes and tea to patients and families every day – it was wonderful to be invited by the High Sherriff to join the Great Herts Bakeoff.”
