There will be scrumptious homemade cakes and hot drinks to enjoy as the Chelmsford home, which provides residential and residential dementia care welcomes the community to raise money for the Great Daffodil Appeal.
Speaking of the upcoming event, home manager Alex Bragg said: “Our residents are already really looking forward to our tea party in honour of Marie Curie – they love welcoming both new and familiar faces to our friendly home.
“Marie Curie is such a fantastic charity, and with March being the month of the Great Daffodil appeal, what better way to support such a good cause than with scrumptious sweet treats.”
