Swan House ‘bakes-off’ for Help for Heroes


Staff at a Willenhall care home have put their culinary skills to the test in support of Help for Heroes.

Swan House care home, which is based on Pooles Lane in the town, engaged with the local community and former soldier, Jamie Pitt, to create a Bake-off-style event for the Armed Forces charity.

Staff and visitors each baked cakes and other delicacies, which were judged by Jamie, with Chris Walker named the overall winner.

The event raised £144.66 for Help for Heroes.

Residents were also treated to the treats and prizes were awarded to the best judged bakers. 

Julie Hinton, Home Manager at Swan House, said: “We are always looking into ways and opportunities to engage with the local community and our Bake-off event was the perfect opportunity to raise some money for charity in the process. Jamie was great with our residents and took on Mary Berry’s role with ease! Help for Heroes does so much for the Armed Forces and its personnel, so it is important to give back.  

“We are looking forward to hosting further events in the future and welcoming back Jamie and other guests to take part in more initiatives at Swan House.”
