A team of Norwich carers will be cycling the length and breadth of the city to mark what would have been the 101st birthday of Sir Captain Tom Moore.
The Norwich carers plan to visit every client in their homes across the city using a bike with a specially adapted trailer to deliver a small token of thanks as part of the challenge.
Long Stratton-based Café Savannah has donated cupcakes to be delivered as part of the gift packages, and clients outside of the city will receive theirs in the coming weeks.
Anne-Marie Brown, branch manager of Manorcourt Homecare Norwich, said: “The last year has been challenging in ways we could never have imagined, but the sense of community and solidarity we have experienced has been humbling and, at times, overwhelming.
"Sir Tom embodies this wonderful community ethos and we’re so proud to be supporting his legacy."
