Residents, their families and team members at brighterkind’s Lawton Manor Care Home in Stoke-on-Trent have put on a spectacular show to say goodbye and wish our Customer Liaison Officer Ann Ball a happy retirement.
Ann has worked at Lawton Manor for the past 20 years and to send her off in style, we performed a musical treat for Ann, which included songs from shows in which Ann herself has participated in over the years at our home. From the Sound of Music, to Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, to Oliver, and The Wizard of Oz, our residents were in fine voice!
For the big finale, a friend of Lawton Manor, George, sang ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ to Ann, which epitomised the community spirit of our home and reminded Ann that she will always be a part of our family here.
Our residents presented Ann with her very own Lifetime Achievement Oscar to say thank you for all the joy, happiness, love and laughter she has brought us all over the years.
Home Manager, Nicke Hall said “Ann's hard work and dedication to Lawton Manor is exemplary. We cannot thank her enough for all she has done for our residents and their families and we have been extremely fortunate to have such a gifted individual on our team. Our residents have given Ann a spectacular send off and we wish Ann all the best in her retirement and look forward to her coming back and visiting soon.”
