A PENSIONER was whisked away for a grand day out in a Rolls Royce. 

Bryan Wickers, 89, who lives at Austenwood Care Home in Gerrards Cross, was surprised with a chauffeured drive around Windsor in a Rolls-Royce, after the care team discovered he once owned one himself.

The 89-year-old was picked up from the home in the Phantom by his daughter and his chauffeur for the day, Renos Sideras, the owner of Austenwood, who took the role very seriously and dressed in full suit. 

The special day, part of the Magic Moments scheme, saw Bryan enjoying a non-alcoholic beer and a lavish Chinese lunch—his chosen cuisine.

Ana Ciobotaru​, care home manager at Austenwood, said: “Bryan often shares his love for high-end, luxury vehicles and we’re honoured to have been able to make this happen for him.

 “It’s always a pleasure to go the extra mile for our residents, especially those who are no longer able to experience elements of their former life.

“We hope Bryan can continue to make many more happy memories with us here at Austenwood.”
