RESIDENTS at a local care home celebrated National Dessert Day by tucking into a selection of cheesecakes and ice cream provided by Headington's Heavenly Desserts.

Staff and residents at Chawley Grove Care Home, Cumnor Hill, enjoyed donations from the London Road dessert shop which helped them celebrate the day.

The bakery provided a selection of cheesecake flavours including Red Velvet, Lotus Biscoff, Madagascan Vanilla, Lotus Biscoff, Strawberry & Creme, and Cookies & Creme.

The dessert company also included a platter of Little Moons Mochi ice cream in their donation.

Chawley Grove’s community relations lead Karen Fitzgerald said the gesture from Heavenly Desserts manager Sheraz Rafique and his team was well-received.

She said: “It’s incredibly kind of Sheraz and the Heavenly Desserts' team to think of us and to do something guaranteed to put a smile of everyone’s face at Chawley Grove.

“Cheesecake is a firm favourite among the residents and the staff here and National Dessert Day was an excellent excuse for a bit of indulgence.

“These community gestures mean a lot to us, and we can’t thank Heavenly Desserts enough.”
