residential, residential memory care, nursing and nursing memory care home, in Manchester, held a cake sale today in support of the Macmillan Cancer Coffee Morning.

They made chocolate sponge cakes, brownies and had a variety of cakes donated by staff too.
In the afternoon, staff had a stall set up for a cake sale in the foyer for everyone to buy a cake, should they wish.

There was lots of reminiscing afterwards about different cakes and the Residents enjoyed a slice with a cup of tea. All Residents, who engaged in the activity, enjoyed it!
