Windsor Court care home in Wetherby surprised two lucky residents with a trip to watch their favourite football team, as part of their new ‘Dream It, Do it’ initiative.
Launched in July, Windsor Court’s ‘Dream It, Do It’ initiative is designed to help residents live each day to the fullest.
The care staff will ask each resident for one wish – their perfect day. Throughout the year, the staff will choose residents at random, and their wish will be granted!
Residents are handed a golden ticket ahead of their special day, listing the details of what’s to come.
Life-long Leeds United fans, 87-year-old Brian Green and 81-year-old Peter Durham, were over the moon when they received their golden ticket – a trip to watch their favourite football team play at Elland Road.
Brian and Peter have developed a very close friendship since meeting at Windsor Court, bonding over their love of football.
Joined by members of the care team, Brian and Peter were thrilled to be given front row seats to what turned out to be a very exciting match.
They sat behind the oppositions goal, in which Leeds would score five times in the second half of the game. Brian said,
‘It was wonderful. We were so close to the pitch we could see all the players. It was a great match and we enjoyed it a lot.’
Sophie Summerscales, the Home Manager at Windsor Court, said,
‘We’re really looking forward to continuing with our ‘Dream It, Do It’ initiative. It’s a great way for us to give our residents the best experiences, and get to know them on a deeper level.
‘It was fantastic to see Brian and Peter having such an amazing time at the football, and I can’t wait to see who will receive our next golden ticket!’
