This Is The House That Linden Baked! Coffee Morning Gets Developer's Support
02 Oct 2014

Linden Homes Midlands has taken the unprecedented decision to donate one of its properties as a local raffle prize – albeit in sponge and icing form!

The developer, which is currently building 128 homes in the village at The Limes, supported this year’s national Biggest Coffee Morning – in aid of Macmillan Cancer Care – by donating a specially commissioned 3D cake version of its Barnstone show home.

Fundraisers in the village made a donation to ‘name the house’ at the annual local coffee morning in the Sapcote Village Pavilion – in support of the cancer care charity.

The cake itself was donated to the village’s Livesey Lodge residential home, to be enjoyed by those living there.

Organisers of the event are hoping to top last year’s amount of £2,600 raised. And Jenny Chapman, who helps to co-ordinate the Sapcote event, said: “Our huge thanks to Linden Homes Midlands for their generous donation of such a wonderful cake, and for helping to make the coffee morning another success for the village. We are hoping to top the amount we raised last year.”

Linden Homes Midlands sales director Chris Roads said: “We were delighted to be able to support this great cause, and the cake really did look stunning. As a ‘newcomer’ to the village we are keen to help the local community where we can.”

The Limes development at Hinckley Road boasts two show homes, and a selection of two, three and four-bedroom homes. Many of the homes are detached, including a small selection of two bedroom bungalows. The development enjoys a convenient setting overlooking open countryside with a close proximity to the market town of Hinckley and the vibrant city of Leicester.
