***Cake Alert***

Time to celebrate. 

Over the next few weeks, ICA volunteer, Amy Roff, will be baking some special treats for local residents – big thanks for that Amy. 

In order to ensure we reach a wide range of people, we would like you to nominate the recipients of these treats.

Perhaps it’s someone’s birthday or anniversary. Maybe someone has gone that extra mile for you or the community, from a key worker to child who’s worked really hard to complete their school work or help out at home. 

Whatever the reason, all you need to do is:
1. Like the ICA Facebook page (search for Island Community Action)
2. Make a comment on the original post, including the name of the person you’re nominating and why you’ve nominated them. 
3. Make this comment by Friday, 12 noon each week.

We’ll draw the winning name randomly and get back to you by 2pm on that same Friday. We’ll then provide an updated post each week, fresh for your new nominations. 

NB: At the moment, due to shortages, all cakes will be made of gluten free ingredients.

Here’s a little more about Amy, in her own words…

My name is Amy. I’m 39 years old and having to ‘shield’ at the moment due to having long term health conditions that make me vulnerable to Covid-19. I really wanted to do something to help others during this time, so I contacted the ICA to see if I could cook for people. 

ICA suggested cake baking to say thank you to all the people helping others in the community and I jumped at the idea.

I have been baking since I was a teenager. I have always loved cooking and the joy it brings to others. I have made cakes for parties, church coffee mornings, family and for charity.  I have to keep to strict gluten free diet myself so also specialise in making cakes which are allergy friendly. I have got my food Hygiene Level 2 and my Food Allergy Awareness qualifications.

I am really excited about having the opportunity to say thank you to our local heroes and I hope I will be able to bring a smile to people’s faces during this challenging time.
