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.

Drop off timings and location for the cakes this week are as follows:

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.
