Sonya Lodge Residential Care Home hosts Macmillan fundraiser

We hosted our annual Macmillan Fundraiser at Sonya Lodge Residential Care Home and this year started off our event with a ‘Bake Off’ competition for our staff and residents!

We had a whopping 11 entries which ranged from large cakes to cupcakes and sweet pastry treats. Our residents worked together with our Activities Team to make a beautiful chocolate cake that was iced and decorated in the Macmillan green and purple colours.

One of our Chefs John, our Deputy Manager Abi, and Nellsar’s Recreation and Well-Being Manager Viv, judged our competition. They gave scores for taste and presentation and did not know who had made each entry.

It was a closely contested battle but…

  • Our 1st prize went to our residents
  • 2nd prize to Deanne (Recreation and Well-Being Team)
  • 3rd prize to Vic (Recreation and Well-Being Team)

We invited in our residents’ families and friends in the afternoon for a raffle, coffee afternoon and cake sale to enjoy all of the scrumptious competition entries. Our residents loved the day and enjoyed spending time with their loved ones.

We had a fantastic day raising money for a wonderful cause and were over the moon to send Macmillan a grand total of £305.25!

Huge thanks to all our bakers, our judges and friends and family who made the day such a memorable one.
