Thank You Heart Banner

The Cakery says ‘Thank You’ To Key Workers With Contactless Cupcake Deliveries

A few weeks ago we announced that we were taking nominations for key workers who are doing an amazing job of keeping us safe and looked after in the community and we had so many lovely nominations from people all over Leamington Spa and Warwickshire. It has been really hard to choose between all the fantastic nominations (we wish we could answer them all!) but some stood out to us in particular. We’ve been delivering cupcakes to our chosen nominees over the past few weeks and have loved getting photos and messages of thanks from them. It’s wonderful to be able to bring some cheer to people who are putting themselves at risk for the rest of us. We can’t thank you enough!

We have also been continuing to provide sweet treats to NHS staff at Warwick Hospital with the help from The Barn Kitchen.

Your Nominations

Here’s some of our favourite nominations along with the great photos we received, we particularly enjoyed the photo of the nurses at Cape Road clinic social distancing in the car park with their cake!

Police Officers at Leamington Spa Police Station:

“Please can I nominate Donna Smith. She’s a police officer at Leamington police station and she’s currently spending her days on the beat dealing with people who aren’t taking the lock down seriously. You can imagine the kind of response she’s getting! She should have been getting married in Italy last month and having a big celebration at Warwick House too. But that all went down the pan thanks to Covid-19. So I’m sure she’d appreciate some of your amazing cakes!! Her husband to be is also police officer at Leamington station. Thanks very much guys. You’re doing an amazing job!! xx ”

– Sam, Leamington Spa

Medical Students at Warwick Hospital:

“I thought I’d message you guys as I saw your initiative. I’m a medical student who’s passed all his exams and gone to work on the wards early. I’ve managed to get covid from the hospital already and I’m now self-isolating in my bedroom. I’d like to nominate my 7 house mates (who are also working medical students) who are now forced to stay at home and look after me. They’ve been on the wards all of last week and some over the weekend and now they’re cooking for me and delivering it to my bedroom. I know you’ll be inundated with requests but I thought I’d ask. Very grateful for supporting the whole care community and I realise you can’t give away your stock to everyone. Thank you!”

All staff in the NHS are working extremely hard throughout the country and this is such a lovely gesture. I’ve only managed them for a short time but their hard work, supportive nature, looking out for each other and the patients on the caseload makes me so proud. “

Kerry, Leamington Spa

“I think you’re doing a great job bringing a cheer to the frontline.  I would like to nominate my Daughter in Law Toni and the District Nursing team based at the clinic at Cape Road. There are 18 nurses keeping normality to elderly, vulnerable and people living on their own who have health issues. Xx”

Bromson Hill Care Home:

She works as many hours as she can for the sake of the residents even though she’s high risk after suffering a mini stroke a few years ago, she cares so deeply for them she’s offered to go on lockdown in the home if needed.”

Key worker a Boots Leamington Spa:

“Please can I nominate the Boots key workers for a selection of your gorgeous cupcakes! Since lockdown, management, healthcare, pharmacy and assistants have continued to work hard, providing essential goods to customers.

Well done Boots and thank you The Cakery for a brilliant service. Take care everyone and stay safe!”

‘A world of hearts’ – Our Colourful Window Display

We joined in with the movement to bring colourful rainbows and hearts to the world with a colourful window display of rainbow coloured hearts. We hope it brings a smile to lots of faces when passing our shop during a walk outside.

The display was made from a mix of cut-out paper hearts and poster painted hearts and includes the message ‘The world came together…as the people stayed apart’. 🙂

Help us to say ‘Thank You’ to our Key Workers with Cake! Nominate a Key Work for a Cake Delivery

It was a very sad decision for us to have to close the Cakery due to the recent Corona Virus outbreak but we know its the best thing to do for the safety on our staff and customers. Despite having to close a lot of essential local businesses and services have continued and we’ve been so moved by the hard work that others are putting in to keep us all safe, to keep us fed and keep essential services running. The people of the UK and the local community are doing amazing things and we are so thankful!

Before closing we had some requests to provide cakes for NHS workers at Warwick Hospital and were told that these really helped to lift spirits..since then we have had more requests come in so we felt that the best thing to do was to open up the service to all key workers in the community so that we can share the joy to more people who deserve a treat. We are continuing to provide cakes to the Warwick Hospital teams through The Barn Kitchen which is an amazing service providing deliveries of all sorts of food to NHS workers and vulnerable people throughout Warwickshire.

We are now taking nominations for deliveries of cakes to key workers so if you know someone that deserves a treat for their hard work, get in touch. We are taking nominations on social media (Instagram, Facebook ) or you can send us an email: gemma@thecakeryleamington.co.uk

All deliveries must be to a public building or home address  within 10 miles of The Cakery in Leamington town centre and we must be able to make the delivery contactless. We cannot take deliveries inside the building so please keep this in mind when nominating.
