Learning for the Fourth Age are delighted to announce that we have received £8,400 funding from The National Lottery Community Foundation for our brand new Care to Share project.
We want to work with local people to create “Care to Share”, inviting and facilitating skilled amateur and professional bakers to ‘care to share a recipe’ with older people living in a care setting nearby.
This would require them to volunteer to come to a care setting for older people and spend time together measuring, mixing and manipulating ingredients as per the recipe. It would also require them to bake in advance to produce towards the end of the sessions as the other baked treats cooked. The pre-made offering would then be tasted, shared and enjoyed by the care home residents (ideally alongside a hot drink and some conversation)!
If you would like to be involved, please do contact us. We would love to hear from you.
