Carole celebrated her 75th birthday in style recently. One of our Forth Valley services was able to organise a piper and singer to come along and perform ‘Happy Birthday’ among other songs in Carole’s garden. The team spent time prepping the garden, filling it with colourful balloons and hanging banners across the fences.

Neighbours popped their heads round to listen to the music throughout the day whilst wishing Carole a happy birthday. John, a friend of Carole’s, was also able to make an appearance thanks to the team, together they enjoyed a sunny afternoon in the garden.

To top it off, Carole had lots of presents to open, the contents of which included some of her favourite chocolates and a few miniature bottles of wine, which she was more than happy with.

Yvonne, Support Practitioner in Forth Valley, said: “Carole absolutely loved it. She was smiling from ear to ear throughout the day.

"She's an amazing lady and has coped remarkably well under the current circumstances, we couldn't be more proud."
