Triple celebration


The patrons at Old England Hotel surprised three good friends by singing ‘Happy Birthday’ for them as the waitress put the cake on the table.

Delighted clients Samantha Melli, Andrew Dacy and Jamie Dawes smiled together amazed by the attention extended to them.  All three friends have birthdays within weeks of each other and decided to go out and celebrate in style.

Samantha, Andrew and Jamie organised their night out by having dinner at the Old England Hotel and then attend the Air Supply concert at the Palais Theatre. “We discussed the outing and bought the tickets to the concert some months ago, so all three were very excited when the date finally arrived” said Carol Conway, Individualised Support Worker.

After dinner Samantha, Jamie and Andrew along with Carol went to the concert. They really enjoyed the concert, particularly the lighting effects. There was excitement all round when the band came off the stage and walked up the aisles, singing and waving to the audience. 

Jamie was thrilled when he was able to have his concert program signed by the band!

“We encourage clients to go out together as it’s a great way for many of our clients to have wonderful personal experiences, shared with friends. It’s something we all love to do”, said Nick Pouki, Manager, Individual Support.
