Former Cheddar FC player, Nelson, enjoyed a VIP day out at the football recently, when his former club invited him to come and watch one of their home games.
Watching the game
Now a resident at Greenhill House in Cheddar, Nelson enjoyed catching up with old friends including the club's president, and watched the game in the company of Greenhill's deputy manager, Fay, and her partner.
It was his first trip out of the home for a while, and Nelson really was treated like a VIP by the Club, who put on half-time tea and cake, and have invited Nelson back anytime he likes in the future.
Thanks for a special day
Manager of Greenhill House, Jenny Futcher, says:
"I would like to thank everyone at Cheddar Football Club for making Nelson's day out so special. A huge thank you is also due to Fay, who used her day off - and roped in her partner - to collect Nelson and give him an incredible day out to remember.
"Going to watch the football might seem such a small thing, but it's clear how much it meant to Nelson. It's wonderful to see his face light up everytime he talks about his trip out to watch the game.
"At Greenhill House, we're really passionate about supporting our residents to live the life they choose - that goes beyond personal care and support to carry out everyday tasks. The positive emotional impact of supporting individuals to maintain their hobbies and interests cannot be understated. You only need to look at the smile on Nelson's face to see what a huge difference that makes.
"Thank you to everyone who made this possible."
