Budding bakers rolled up their sleeves and made hundreds of cakes to show their support for charity.

People across the borough got involved in Jewish Care’s first ever Great Jewish Bake Day by setting up cake stalls or throwing a tea party to raise money and awareness for the charity.

Residents at Rubens House in Finchley were treated to a tea party with entertainment from a Magic Circle magician while celebrity chef Denise Phillips held a cookery session for members of the Holocaust Survivors’ Centre in Hendon, teaching them how to make different flavour breads.

Cake chef Rachel Rachel dropped by Jewish Care’s Rosetrees & Lady Sarah Cohen home in Friern Barnet to make sugared animals with residents while the Jewish Princesses visited Sam Beckman Centre for People Living With Dementia to demonstrate how to make strudel.

Sainsbury’s in Golders Green also donated cakes to be sold in aid of the charity which needs to raise £15million this year to continue its services supporting vulnerable people in the community.

Debbie Fox, Jewish Care’s vice-chair:  “Without this support Jewish Care could not continue to be there for the thousands of people and their families who rely on the charity’s support. It’s so important to reach out to all members of the community whatever their age and this seemed like a fun way to do so – after all who doesn’t like cake.”
