There are many groups that our helping families with food parcels and essentials, however there is not always money left over for luxuries.
We have all had different celebrations this year, but have made it special in our own way. With more and more people being affected financially things like birthday cakes are not something that many are able to stretch to. Local group free cakes for kids make cakes for youngsters that otherwise would not get one. Families are referred to the group by local support networks and they have a team of bakers who donate their time and skills for free. This week I was able to donate some ingredients to help with this week's bakes. I really hope the children enjoy their cakes and that they have a lovely birthday.
