Resident of Home of Compassion celebrates 85th birthday

We love to celebrate birthdays at Home of Compassion. After all, the more you praise and celebrate life, the more there is in life to celebrate! John Driver recently invited twenty friends and relatives to mark the occasion of his 85th birthday in style.

John booked our elegant private dining room for the occasion and our Hospitality Team were pleased to be asked to cook and serve a lovely selection of delicious food for John and his guests. Among the tantalising spread were three birthday cakes including a chocolate ‘Rudolph’ sponge. Of course, champagne was also provided to toast the ebullient host who wore a colourful turban for the event.

Our private dining room is the perfect place for an exclusive gathering from a special dinner or luncheon party to a larger get-together. Of course, our open door policy means that visitors are encouraged to visit friends and relatives living at Home of Compassion at any time, taking pleasure in its beautiful surroundings.
