The team and residents at Howdon Care Centre in Wallsend have begun their Christmas cake preparation ready for the big day!
Ruth Todd, Home Manager, said: “We’ve started prepping the fruit for our ‘stir it up’ Sunday which is when we bake it. The cake will then be available to buy at our Christmas Market on 19th December 2016. We can’t wait for the festivities to begin or more importantly the tasters to be given out!”
When they haven’t been preparing the fruit, the home have been introducing Charlie, the West Highland Terrier, also known as ‘little fella’ to the residents.
Ruth Todd, Home Manager, added: “Charlie really does bring a lot of happiness to our residents with their daily dose of pet therapy and lots of cuddles. It is true what they say, ‘ a dog is a man’s best friend’.”
