Tenants at Anchor’s Nene Court retirement housing scheme in Wisbech have raised awareness of heart disease and also £120 for the British Heart Foundation by holding a Rock it in Red event.

Residents made heart-shaped biscuits and cupcakes from healthy ingredients and decorated the communal lounge together.

Scheme Manager Joe Jolly said: “Tenants really enjoyed Rocking It In Red as they like to give something back to the local community.”

Tenant Jean Maycock said: “It is so important to look after your heart which is why we wanted to get involved with Rock It In Red. I was responsible for the biscuits and cupcakes.”

Fellow tenants Irene Reach who has helped with making decorations said: “It’s nice to raise money for charity and give back to the community.”
