On last week’s Rewind show on Aycliffe Radio, we unveiled a surprise birthday cake to help celebrate Aycliffe Town’s 70th Birthday. Thanks to June Kent, local resident and cake maker extraordinaire we were able provide a beautiful cake to be donated to a local care home.
During the show hosts Amy Harrison and Phill Hawkins compiled a list of care homes on the town and then with the assistance of guests Paul Gittins, Paul Kjensdad and Paul Mooney they drew out The Aycliffe Care Home as the lucky recipient.
The care home was contacted immediately after the show and arrangements were made to deliver the cake to the staff and residents the following morning.
The timing of delivering the cake was ideal as care home administrator Amanda Maclean was celebrating her own birthday so we were able to make it a happy double celebration.
Phill, Amy and Paul Kjensdad got the chance to meet some of the staff and residents and enjoy some of the birthday cake with their mid morning cuppa.
Senior care assistant Julie Bialek and team leader Heather Taylor took time out from their busy schedule to thank Aycliffe Radio and Rewind for donating a beautiful birthday cake to the residents and staff at Aycliffe Care Home as part of the towns 70th birthday celebration.
