Funeral arrangers bringing in homemade cakes.

Lyn’s cupcakes go down a treat

When the annual Alzheimer’s Society Cupcake Day came around, Lyn Towlson from Hucknall Funeralcare wanted to put her talents to good use and help raise money for this great cause.

Hucknall raise money for the Alzheimer's Society

Lyn baked and decorated an impressive 7 dozen little cakes. Not just any cupcakes for Lyn though – she whipped up Black Forrest, Lemon, Red Velvet, Chocolate Surprise, Vanilla and Tiramisu! She was helped by local Co-op Food store in Papplewick Green who generously gave her £15 to put towards the ingredients.

Three dozen cakes went to the Papplewick Green store and by the afternoon they were ringing to tell Lyn they’d sold out, so it was more baking for Lyn that night to provide more cakes for the morning.


All the hard work paid off for the team though as they were able to pass on £101 to the Alzheimer’s Society.

Well done to the teams and especially Lyn, who we’re sure will be in high demand this time next year!
