Macmillan: Having Our Cake and Eating It!

The world’s biggest coffee morning… We are delighted to again participate in Macmillan Cancer Support’s annual World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.  Apple House care home hosted theirs this morning: cake baking and cake eating were the order of the day!  Jayne Jackson, Registered Manager, says, “It was lovely to see children here this morning, who had great fun picking up the apples that had freshly fallen from our tree.”  We suspect the apples might not have been quite as tasty as the cakes but definitely offered a healthy alternative!

World Autism Awareness Week…

With World Autism Awareness Week soon upon us, there is much planning going on behind the scenes at Apple House homes. We really don’t need an excuse to eat cake but, if we did, there would be no greater and more worthwhile reason to do so than to raise money for WAAW. Between 27th March – 2nd April 2017, The National Autistic Society (NAS) is asking people to raise money and awareness so that ‘as many people as possible learn about autism.’  They urge everyone to ‘bake, walk, quiz, collect…until everyone understands.&#8217…
