Feeding the pipers!

Carlisle Mencap's Doves Cafe staff were kept busy making cakes and scones to feed some special guests to the city - The Pipes and Drums of Canada, made up of 50 musicians. The Pipes and Drums of Canada  paraded through the city streets on the last day of August. Senior Pipe Major Ross Baxter led 50 pipers from Carlisle Castle at 11am. The Mayor of Carlisle, Councillor Jessica Riddle then hosted a reception for them at the Civic Centre at midday - and that's where Carlisle Mencap came in! For the city council ordered 100 cakes and scones from the charity's Doves Cafe, and they were duly delivered on time by Josie from the cafe and events & fundraising officer Phil. The Canadians' visit to Carlisle forms part of a programme of visits to other northern England and Scottish venues.
