On Friday 15th and Saturday 16th June, we will be taking part in the Alzheimer’s Society’s Cupcake Day!
For the event, bakers are encouraged to bring in their baked cake delights, and they’ll be put on sale at West Farm (Friday) and Cramlington House (Saturday), to help raise money to help fund medical research in the fight against dementia and also support those living with dementia and their families.
If you don’t have time to make your own cupcakes, it’s ok to cheat (!) and pop to your local supermarket and donate your purchases, all for a good cause. On the day, there will be so many delicious cup cakes to choose from and any amount can be bought, alongside a nice cuppa or two to enjoy them with. We will also be playing ‘guess the cupcake flavour’ which will not only be fun but very tasty too!
All of the proceeds from the sale of the cupcakes will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Society and used to provide emotional support to the relatives of those diagnosed with dementia or help fund care support for those living with the condition, through one of the Society’s volunteer led programmes. Donations will also go towards finding out how dementia develops.
So please come and join us at West Farm this Friday from 11am or Cramlington House on Saturday from 2pm – it’s probably best to stick to a light lunch so that you have room for lots of cakes!

"I am very pleased with how my mother has settled in and generally how supportive and caring the staff are. This has given us peace of mind knowing that she is safe & well looked after. Thank you."
"Our mum has been a resident at Cramlington House for over a year and we have nothing but praise for the friendly, approachable staff and management. We always feel like part of an extended family and when we visit nothing is too much bother. We are completely happy with the standard of care, support and understanding we all receive as a family."
"From the first day, I knew it was the place for my mum. Clean, friendly staff, lovely environment! My mum would not get the opportunity to do the activities she is experiencing if she was not in Cramlington House. It is home from home and we can visit anytime. I can't say enough of how great Cramlington House is. "
"This is an absolutely superb care facility. The staff say that this is the home of the residents, in which they work - and they evidence that philosophy every day. In the last months of our mother's long life, we took comfort form the fact that she was safe and secure, being well-fed and looked after. The entire care team are brilliant. "
"All the staff at West Farm have provided such wonderful care, compassion and support to my auntie. We both feel incredibly lucky to have found West Farm, it’s been the perfect home for my auntie. I can honestly say, hand on heart, every aspect of the care provided by each member of staff at West Farm has been outstanding."
