Both residents and staff were busy baking and decorating their favourite cakes in preparation for the fundraising event. Home manager Elaine Robson said: "Cancer affects so many people’s lives. Everyone here was committed to raising as much money as possible, and welcoming visitors who came in for a slice of cake and a chat."
The Cumberland, in Mitcham, Surry, is home to 42 residents with dementia and has an award for its commitment to individual care.
Elaine said: "The key to wellbeing for people with dementia is to keep active and engaged. I have a wonderful team of staff who work hard to ensure that each resident has a genuinely individual care plan that incorporates their likes, dislikes and hobbies.
"As well as a great team, we are also grateful to have the support of relatives of current and former residents who help us on our fundraising days, social events and outings."
