We celebrated the work of our youngest volunteer recently; at only 13 years of age, Anais Davies loves joining residents during events and helping out at the home on weekends. Inspired by the dedication of the staff at here, Anais has plans to become a physiotherapist when she gets older.
She recently helped us to make a massive cake in recognition of the Queen's birthday. To make this 28kg (4.5 stone) Victoria sponge cake, Anais baked 19 sponge cakes, used 57 eggs, 4lbs of butter, 4kg of fondant, 4kg of icing sugar and 1.5 kg of fresh strawberries. It took Anais and her volunteers 30 hours to design the crown, bake the sponge cakes and decorate it.
