A love of cake helps to raise money for Children In Need

November 20th 2012

Heather View joined in with the fundraising for BBC Children in Need this year, and decided to combine the home’s love of a get-together and cake and raised a donation of £236 in an afternoon.

The team dressed in fancy dress and friends and relatives joined residents to take part in the tombola and enjoy the wonderful cakes well-wishers had made for the cake stall.

Customer Relations Manager Marion Wickison said: “It was a fun event and our chef Martin Higgins kindly made a cake for the ‘guess the weight’ competition.”

The chocolate gateau, decorated with almonds, strawberries and shortbread hearts, weighed 3.89kg and was won by hostess Marian Brooker.

Our Heather View care home has 74 spacious rooms, all with 24-hour nurse call systems, en-suite facilities, TVs and electronically adjustable beds. We get to know all of our residents so we can ensure that we create a care plan that is perfectly suited to their needs, including any hobbies or interests that we can help them take part in. Heather View is a real home from home, with a shop, tearoom, library, cinema and hair salon. These are set around an indoor village green, which is a popular spot for our residents to spend time. Our beautiful gardens enable residents to spend time outdoors, playing games or relaxing taking in the stunning surroundings.
