Celtic Themed Birthday Celebrations At Hillview Court

One of Hillview Court’s residents recently celebrated her 90th Birthday. Eileen has been a loyal Celtic football fan all her life and her bedroom wall is decorated with a large flag so all who visit her know of her sporting allegiance. Eileen is no longer able to get out of bed these days so a trip out to Celtic Park would be a bit much, but she still watches her team faithfully.

Jane, the home manager, wrote to the Chief Executive of Celtic football club and told them about their loyal fan and asked if they could send her a little memento. After some persuasion and persistence on her part they were more than happy to send over a beautiful bouquet of flowers and card saying “No.1 fan”. Eileen was understandably elated to receive these and her family were just as excited.

Eileen had a lovely birthday tea in her room, which had been fully decked out with Celtic’s team colours. Family and staff joined her for what was a very special day.
