Walfinch carers deliver Coronation cake

It was Coronation cake all round for clients of the Walfinch homecare franchise in Southampton – and some extra for their families too.

Laura Pineiro made cakes decorated with icing, sprinkles and rice paper crowns for all of Walfinch homecare’s 15 clients, ahead of the Coronation. “We gave each of them two, so they had an extra one to share with family or friends while they were watching the ceremony on television,” says Angela Harding, who co-owns the Walfinch Southampton franchise with Laura.

Laura, Angela, Care Coordinator Robin Boulter and members of the Walfinch care team delivered the boxed cakes to clients on Friday. The cakes were a big hit, with clients telling the Walfinch team: “Wow, they look yummy. Thank you so much, that is very kind of you. I will enjoy them tomorrow whilst watching the coronation on TV with my family,” and “Absolutely fabulous. They will go nicely with a good old-fashioned cup of tea,” and, “Laura must have been busy! Thank you all, they look lovely”.

Angela says: “It was a lovely way to help our clients celebrate, and we discovered that two of our clients’ wives were at the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth 2nd in 1953, so it brought back happy memories.”

She adds: “One of our clients and his wife have just received an anniversary card congratulating them on their anniversary from King Charles and Queen Camilla.”

Laura and Angela’s reputation for providing their care clients with treats reaches around the world. For Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee, the pair delivered a British Jubilee tea of homemade salmon and cucumber and egg mayonnaise sandwiches, scones with jam and cream and a fondant fancy. Angela says: “Some clients’ families put the news on Facebook – and one post reached as far as Australia!”
