Residents and staff from a Hitchin-based care home rolled up their sleeves and provided some tasty home baked treats for their own Macmillan coffee morning last week.
Everyone from Foxholes Care Home, near Hitchin, was keen to show off their baking talents during the national Macmillan Coffee Mornings last Friday, with the fundraising part of the day proving to be the icing on the cake.
As well as putting on a banquet of treats at the family-run residential home, the Foxholes team also held a raffle which people could enter following every £2 donation – with winners Chris and Jo Hewson receiving a delicious summer berry cake made by Foxholes’ head chef, Manuel.
Neil Gandecha, estate manager at Foxholes, said: “We thank everyone who took part and donated – every penny counts. Everyone got to enjoy their cakes – without a soggy bottom in sight of course!”
“All our residents and staff rolled their sleeves up and baked some delicious cakes for Macmillan Cancer Support.
