Some traditions are worth keeping and at Palmerston Manor Rest Home they encourage their residents to keep baking their traditional Christmas cakes, just like they always did at home for family and friends and using trusted ingredients that they have always used.
This year saw them mixing and baking whilst reminiscing and sharing baking tips with each other. The eldest of these inspirational ladies is Thelma, who is 101 years old – perhaps the oldest person in New Zealand still baking with Chelsea Sugar!
Thank you to Trisha (Diversional Therapist) for sharing their story.
