COLLEGE students baked up a storm by creating 450 cakes for a party.

Students from New College Stamford helped create the three tier creation for a party, which was organised by the Rutland Home Improvement Agency - an offshoot of Age UK Leicester Shire and Rutland.

More than 100 elderly, disabled and vulnerable people, who are helped by the agency, attended a party at St George’s Barracks in North Luffenham on May 29 to celebrate the Queen’s diamond jubilee. Pupils from Leighfield Primary School in Uppingham sang to those at the party and everyone who attended also received a commemorative mug, filled with mints.

The agency usually holds a Christmas party but it is the first time at other times.

Project coordinator Julie Lewis, who organised the party, said: “The soldiers served up a buffet tea and there was a lot going on.

“It was just such a lovely event.”
