Staff and residents at a Solihull retirement home teamed up to support local people with MS in a ‘Cake Break’ fund raiser.
The Mayor and Mayoress, Coun Ian Courts and Mrs Sheila Courts, attended Sunrise Senior Living’s Solihull Breakfast Club, on Thursday morning, April 28.
Billed as the Cake Break, the event was a fund raising curtain raiser for MS Week next month, from May 23-29.
Celia Richards, chairman of the Solihull and District branch of the Multiple Sclerosis Society, said: “Our branch members help almost 250 people affected by MS and we hope more local people will support our Cake Break events, including this excellent event at Sunrise Senior Living.”
Geraldine Smith of Sunrise Senior Living, said: “We wanted to support the MS Society’s Cake Break as this is such a great cause.”
Sunrise Senior Living has invited local MS Society members to lunch and entertainment for 30 people on Friday May 20 and will also be selling cakes, the recipe book and organising a raffle.
