Residents of award winning retirement village Roseland Parc cooked up a special way of handing over a charity donation.
 
An arrangement of cupcakes announced the grand total of £765 raised at the retirement village’s Christmas fair for the Little Harbour Hospice.
 
The annual event attracted plenty of visitors to Roseland Parc, in Tregony, Truro who bought cakes, snapped up crafts and visited Santa’s Grotto.
 
Residents pledged the proceeds to the hospice, near St Austell, which they have been supporting for a number of years.
 
Little Harbour representative Mary Murfin was on hand to receive the cash. She was also presented with the iced cupcakes for the children and families currently using the hospice’s facilities to enjoy.
 
Lois Wild organised Roseland Parc’s Christmas fair. She said: “We were delighted to raise so much in just a few hours. The residents here have been supporting the Precious Lives Appeal raising money to build Little Harbour for several years. Now the hospice is open they’re delighted to be continuing that support through fund raising activities.”
