Newark Care Homes Collaborate With Talented Local Baker To Support Small Businesses

Two Nottinghamshire care homes have teamed up with a local cake business to provide support during the pandemic.

Red Rose Care Community and Red Roofs Residential Care Home situated in Newark have been working with Ringrose Cakes to help kick-start the economy. Over the last few months, it has been very difficult for businesses to get back on their feet and this is why Red Homes Healthcare Group has decided to give back to the local community.

Throughout the pandemic, businesses from across Newark have generously donated a number of edible goodies, toiletry hampers, bouquets of flowers and gardening supplies to the care homes and this has not gone unnoticed.

Trish Smith, general manager at Red Roofs Residential Care Home said: “We have been overwhelmed with the support we’ve received from the local community over the last year. It has been tough, but we’ve come together as a family and got through one of the hardest periods in our lifetime.”

“We were really excited to receive the cupcakes from Natalie because it’s very rare we have branded cakes delivered to our door. We are very fortunate to have such a talented baker in the local area.”

“Nothing was too much trouble for Natalie and each of our residents received their very own Red Roofs and Red Rose branded cupcakes. This is just one of the many ways we make all who reside with us feel included and part of the Red Homes family.”

“We are proud to have been able to support Ringrose Cakes and are very much looking forward to working with the business again in the near future.”

Natalie Connett, owner of Ringrose Cakes said: “Back in January I was contacted by Red Homes Healthcare and asked to provide cupcakes as a special treat to each of their care homes. I agreed immediately and started planning what the cupcakes would look like as they wanted a red theme.”

“For the past few months, I’ve had the pleasure of delivering the cupcakes and meeting the care home staff. It has been lovely to be so warmly welcomed – after all everyone loves a bit of cake!”

“It’s been a difficult year or so with care homes being at the sharp end of the pandemic and it has been lovely to help put a smile back on a few faces.”
