Cakes and stars help us raise fund for charity

September 13th 2013

It is that time of year again at Mowat Court when we eat cake and drink coffee to raise money for MacMillan, the cancer charity.

On Saturday 21st September, between 10am and 11.30am, we will be joining the nationwide MacMillan Coffee Morning appeal to raise funds and awareness for the charity that does amazing work for people with cancer and their families.

Activities coordinator and organiser Lorna Hutcheon said: “Cancer is one of those terrible conditions that seem to touch every family in some way or another.

“Our residents love to bake and they will be making a contribution to our home-made cake stall. They make some particularly tasty butterfly cakes and they also love making ‘Daniel O’Donnell’ cakes. These are sponge cakes topped with pictures of Daniel and their other favourite singers printed with edible ink on rice paper.”

The residents are not the only ones who will be baking. Lorna says that the team at Mowat Court, along with the relatives and chef, have all pledged to get involved.

The event begins at 10am in the lounge and residents’ and the team’s families are all welcome.

Mowat Court is a vibrant home where everyone is encouraged to get involved and take part. Some residents like to help with the cleaning, while others take pleasure in weeding the flower beds, or feeding the chickens in the garden. One resident even helped to build the chicken run! Everyone enjoys getting together for the regular social events including coffee mornings and summer barbeques.
