Highbridge Dreamscheme leads community cake-making for elderly

Members of Highbridge Dreamscheme made dozens of cakes for elderly residents in the town during their ongoing summer programme of community work this week.

The young people made over 50 cakes, scones and pastries as part of an initiative to promote wellbeing among the sheltered housing community of Highbridge.

The young people decided they wanted to do something to give the elderly a gift and to help keep them safe.

The tasty treats were hand-delivered to them by the young people during a large coffee morning attended by local residents at the community building in Trowbridge Close.

Members of the Highbridge Dreamscheme were also joined by PCSO Claire Finch who gave a talk to the group regarding Bogus Callers and being safe in their homes.

The young people finished the coffee morning by giving out Bogus Caller Awareness packs.

One of the group's leaders, Trish Hart, told "It was a fun project and the young people took great care in making the cakes so that they were a special treat for those that attended the coffee morning."

"The residents described the cakes as 'wonderful' and gave them a score of 11/10, adding that it was great to see how pleased the young people were with their comments and how proud they were of their involvement in the initiative."

The youngsters are earning points for a trip to Paignton Zoo later this month.
