SOPWELL COMMUNITY TRUST have asked to help bake cakes for members of the community who are elderly and isolating and need cheering up. Last week they delivered 227 cakes and would like our help this week.

PLEASE JOIN in a and put a small smile on people’s faces. This what you need todo.

Please kindly provide the GSL with the following info: – no of cake boxes you will be filling this week- cake flavours- insert your name against the date and time when you will be dropping off the cakes.

Boxes foe cakes can be collected from at any time – There is a container on porch and one outside the unit with allergen labels, boxes, postcards and envelopes for the children’s notes – please help yourselves. Using the boxes reduces food handling.

WE annot leave cakes on doorsteps wrapped in clingfilm nor foil. Due to food safety and hygiene implications.

Please attach the postcard to the top of the boxes once you have filled them.

Drop off timings and location for the cakes this week are as follows:
–  Wednes 10am – 12.30pm @ Unit 9, The Enterprise Centre, AL3 6EN

Please kindly note the change of timings and location for this week. 

Things to know
You don’t need a hygiene certificate to get involved, just some common sense guidelines to follow here:


please note they are unable to accept cakes that are not labelled with allergen info. So please please collect all relevant labels when collection boxes.

No fresh cream/buttercream/fondant please.

The elderly have modest appetites and prefer traditional flavours such as:- fruit inc apple/pear/rhubarb/apricot- elderflower- victoria sponge- lemon drizzle

We have received requests for gluten free treats, so if you can these would be welcomed. If baking biscuits/flapjacks please keep on the soft side.
