Patients bake cakes to boost bomb fund
MENTAL health patients held a cake sale to raise money for the victims of the Manchester terrorist attack.
Patients at Soss Moss, part of Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and based at Nether Alderley, held a ‘Muffins for Manchester’ event.
They raised more than £100 for the British Red Cross’ ‘We Love Manchester’ fund.
Gary Pigott, who accesses services at Saddlebridge Recovery Centre, baked dozens of cakes that were sold to staff and fellow service users. He said: “It feels good to be able to help such a worthy cause by bringing people together through something positive. Thanks to everyone who bought a cake. I hope our small donation is able to help people who really need it.”
Soss Moss is a 30-bed low secure inpatient site comprising of two wards.
Saddlebridge Recovery Centre is a 15-bed mental health unit, and the Alderley Unit helps people with learning disabilities.
