The Clitheroe Care Home invited the local community to join them for an afternoon of tea and cake. The cooks Maggie Podmolki and Susan Knowles made the most amazing cakes to help raise funds, and the staff and residents helped run the stall.

The manager of the home, Catherine Metcalfe, said: “It was a wonderful afternoon. We enjoyed the sale and welcomed some of the local community to come in and join us. We raised £62, everyone enjoyed being part of the sale and sampling the delicious cakes that were on offer. It is nice to welcome the local community into the home and enables people to meet others that they have not seen for some time.
