Liverpool FC puts icing on the cake for Ron’s 70th birthday celebrations
When Larkrise Care Centre resident and Liverpool FC super-fan, Ron, turned 70 before lockdown, Home Manager Lyndsay and her Larkrise colleagues knew just how to make it extra special for him.
Lyndsay said: “I know how much the football and his team means to Ron, so we all agreed we had to get in touch with them. We knew if there was one thing that would make Ron’s birthday, it would be contact from The Reds.”
On hearing of Ron’s birthday, Liverpool FC got in touch with the home and sent a framed certificate for him that had been signed by every player on the team.
Ron was delighted with his surprise present and was all smiles when it was presented to him along with a fabulous Liverpool FC themed cake created by Larkrise chef, Graham.
The rest of Ron’s special day included a performance by a singer in the home’s club lounge and a trip to Ron’s favourite pub with some of his Larkrise friends.
Lyndsay added: “We always try and think of ways to celebrate our residents’ birthdays that will have special meaning to them. I know that Ron will treasure that certificate and it also means the world to me that we were able to organise it for him.”
