Hallmark grants 93-year-old resident’s wish to attend a flower show
An Anya Court resident had a VIP day out at the BBC Gardener’s World Live after winning our Lucky Star Christmas wish-granting competition.
Stella Jackson, 93 enjoyed a sunny Saturday walking around the NEC Birmingham looking at the beautiful flower displays and meeting gardening expert and television presenter, Carol Klein.
As an additional treat, Stella travelled to and from the show in a luxury Rolls Royce Phantom!
Her visit to the show was arranged by management at the residential, dementia and nursing care home after Stella wished to go to a flower show as part of the home’s in-house competition called Lucky Star.
Stella was revealed as one of the home’s winners in January.
Gardening enthusiast Stella said: “I had a fabulous time at the NEC in Birmingham for the Gardener’s World Live! Anya Court made it such a special day and I am delighted that my wish has come true! I especially loved being driven there in a Rolls Royce and loved the VIP treatment I received!”
Lifestyle leader at Anya Court, Emma Wheatley said: “I am delighted that we could make Stella’s wish come true! It’s just another example of the relationship-centred care we provide at Anya Court!”
