A CARE home raised more than £100 for a medical charity with scrumptious baking. 

Baking cakes and sweet treats, the staff of Oaklands Rest Home in Marchwood held a 'bake for dementia' and raised money for Alzheimer's Society. 

The staff baked eight cakes, which were judged anonymously by the residents and home directors. Daily Echo:

Care home manager Nicola Ray won the best taste award for her chocolate brownies.

She said: "Everyone had a fabulous day with lots of calories consumed, and we were delighted to exceed our fundraising target.

"We were all talking about it for weeks, and we took it quite seriously. Nobody wanted to reveal what they were making until the day itself.Daily Echo:

"I was very happy to win in the best tasting category with my brownies, but I’ve had to keep telling people it was definitely judged anonymously."

The care home raised £75 through online fundraising and an additional £56 from residents’ families and staff to take the total to £131. Daily Echo:

On the fundraising success, Nicola added: "We are a dementia-led home, so we couldn’t think of a better cause than this. Not only do we have residents living with dementia, but also many people in our wider community."
