A CUPCAKE sale is helping a Rotherham care home raise funds to fight dementia.
The tasty treats were sold at Broadacres Care Home, on Parkgate, with all proceeds going to the Alzheimer’s Society.
The home held a Cupcake Day, alongside others across the UK, to kick start their ongoing fundraising for the charity.
A variety of delicious cakes were baked by the home’s activities coordinator, Diane Rice, and the catering team.
Diane said: “We all known someone affected by some form of dementia and, at Broadacres, we want to provide the best possible life for our residents with the condition.
“The aim of the Cupcake Day was to raise as much money as possible for a cause that is dear to many of our hearts.”
So far, the home has collected £57, but is continuing to call for donations through their weekly coffee mornings, held every Tuesday, at 10:30am.
The money will go towards research and support to help fight dementia, a condition someone in the UK develops every three minutes, says the Alzheimer’s Society.
Luke Owens, home manager at Broadacres Care Home, said: “If you were unable to make it to Broadacres for Cupcake Day and would like to give a small donation, then please speak to a member of the team at Broadacres.
“Everyone is welcome to attend our Tuesday coffee mornings, so why not pop in for a hot beverage and some cake and make a donation, not matter how big or small.
“Every penny counts and together we will beat dementia.”
