Cakes Boost Funds At Rosewood Charity Coffee Morning

A delicious selection of home-baked sweet treats helped Rosewood House raise money at a charity coffee morning this autumn.

Residents enjoyed raising cash for Macmillan Cancer Support thanks to the enthusiasm and skill of the Rosewood Chefs.

Talented chefs Dudley and Angela baked a range of goodies so everyone at the home could take part in Macmillan Coffee Morning helping raise funds for people living with cancer.

Residents were joined by friends and family to support the event.

Resident Mary Scott said: “I love these cakes, there should be an event for cakes every week, I am happy to give money to charity!”

And one impressed relative enjoyed her cake so much, she bought extra so she could take some home giving her compliments to the chef.

Some residents at Rosewood even had a go at baking themselves to help raise money.

Cookie-making Pamela Towlson, Sherrie Roper and Doris Goddard baked some scrumptious chocolate chip cookies whilst sharing their memories of home cooking with their mothers. They all agreed that the most exciting bit was getting to lick the bowls at the end!

Rosewood House Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach Lucy Bingham said: “Residents and staff had come along and generously donated money for a good cause. They are still donating even now.”

Macmillan Cancer Support provides specialist health care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer. As well as campaigning for better health care it looks at the emotional, social and practical impact cancer can have.
