We were sad to see the end of our Baking a Difference project working with Planet Leicester Bakers recently and so we chose to celebrate it in the only way we knew how – with an afternoon tea in a care setting. We welcomed activities staff and volunteers from other care settings across Leicestershire to enjoy cakes, scones and speciality
Alongside multiple cups of tea, we enjoyed lots of catching up and conversations, as well as the showing of our film showcasing the project, which you can see here.
Older people who had taken part in the project were particularly pleased to welcome Cameron on the keyboard to accompany the tea party by playing some beautiful light classical music in the background too.
The final report of Baking a Difference will be available shortly.
The ‘How to’ videos are available here so that you too can learn how to exploit the loveliness of bread for the benefit of older people you care for or for your own enjoyment. Do please let us know what you think of the hedgehogs, snakes and science on offer!
Our thanks, as ever, to Michelle Stratford from Planet Leicester Bakers for all of her time, thought and skill in delivering this project in conjunction with our team, as well as to all the staff, residents and volunteers who have been involved over the last year or so too.
