Coast comes to care home resident for seaside birthday party

THE COAST came to a care home resident after a successful appeal for a seaside birthday party – despite being 70 miles inland. 

Staff at Aden Lodge Care Home, in Clayton West, near Huddersfield, wanted to fulfil resident Edward “Eddie” Case’s 85th birthday wish.

As he is unable to travel to the coast, an appeal was issued to help throw a seaside themed party at the home.

They received wide ranging support and managed to create an indoor beach and a seaside themed cake. A pony was also brought to the home, an ice cream vanprovided dessert and seaside games all helped Eddie and guests celebrate.

The home also asked if anyone wanted to send birthday cards, hoping to receive 85 to match Eddie’s age. They were inundated with 88 cards all wishing him well for his birthday.

Children from Excel Childcare, in Clayton West, visited the home to deliver handmade birthday cards and sing Eddie a song.

He said: “It was an absolutely lovely day. How lovely and thoughtful of everyone to think of my birthday.”

Kim Hardy, home manager at Aden Lodge Care Home, said:

“A massive thank you goes out to the Kirklees community, who helped make Eddie’s 85th birthday extra special. He is a huge fan of the great outdoors and said he loved visits to the beach as a child, despite living over one and half hours drive away. We wanted to bring as many traditional seaside attractions to the home as we could as Eddie is not able to travel the long distance to the coast. The support we’ve had and the number cards Eddie received has been absolutely incredible.”
