Townend Close care home gets baking for Alzheimer cupcake day
Townend Close care home supported the Alzheimer’s Society’s annual Cupcake Day, held on Thursday 17 June to help raise vital funds to support people affected by dementia.
Residents and the care team at Anchor’s Townend Close care home in Keighley dusted off their aprons for a baking day whipping up cupcakes for a very important cause. After the cupcakes were bake and decorated, the care team set up an outdoor cake stall in the car park allowing for social distancing where the home-baked treats were sold to people in the local community raising over £130. The proceeds from the sale of the cupcakes will help people living with dementia by funding the Alzheimer’s Society’s services, care and research.
Baker extraordinaire Mavis Viner, 88, resident at Anchor’s Townend Close care home, said:
I really enjoyed the afternoon baking and it makes me feel so happy to be helping such as good cause.
Throughout the bake sale, residents and the care team were also able to reconnect with members of the community.
Sharon Mackie, Manager at Anchor’s Townend Close, said:
We had a great time baking and it was lovely to see the dog walkers and people in the community buying our cupcakes while supporting such an important cause. We’ve many activities scheduled at Townend Close care home as part of our ongoing activity programme and residents especially love baking. We all felt we could do our part by contributing to the Alzheimer’s Society’s Cupcake Day and raising funds for this vital cause all while having fun.
