A CARE home resident celebrated her 95th birthday in style thanks to kind-hearted staff who fulfilled her special wish.

Daphne Collins was taken on a nostalgic trip down memory lane in a Rolls Royce to celebrate her milestone birthday.

The care team at Lent Rise House in Burnham, where Daphne lives, made sure she marked the occasion properly and pulled out all the stops.

Daphne walked down a red carpet into a Rolls Royce which had been kindly provided by JD Prestige Cars.

She then went on a special tour, stopping at some of the most memorable places in her life.

Daphne’s request for a 95th birthday celebration was fulfilled by Activity Coordinators Debbie Baron and Michelle Dean of Lent Rise House.

Daphne always wanted to visit her home town, so Debbie and Michelle put their heads together and surprised her with this celebration.

Daphne’s tour included a visit to Wembley Hill School where she went as a child, the swimming baths near the high street, the swings at King Edward VII Park on St Johns Road and the place where St Johns Church once stood on Kings Road, where Daphne married her husband.

Michelle and Debbie said: “We were so happy to be able to give Daphne the day that she deserved on a very special birthday.

“She shared some wonderful stories with and told us about her and her twin sister both marrying identical twins!

“She didn’t stop smiling all day and she’s been talking about the occasion ever since.”

Following the tour, Daphne was treated to an afternoon tea, doughnuts, cupcakes and a party with fellow residents and volunteers back at Lent Rise House, which is run by The Fremantle Trust.
