Kingsgate Care Home in East Kilbride ensured that lovebirds Helen and Danny Falloon celebrated Valentine’s Day in true romantic fashion. Particularly since the following day is their wedding anniversary!
This year, the lovely couple celebrated 63 delightful years of marriage together. Helen and Danny enjoyed a restaurant-worthy meal along with their fellow residents at the home to celebrate the day of love.
In the home’s dining room, the tables were dressed with themed decorations including rose petals, confetti and a beautiful red table runner.
However, the 15th February was all about them! The couple received lots of cards from their loved ones and they were also gifted a tasty cake, which didn’t last 5 minutes!
Helen and Danny have been married for 63 years and have two daughters, Anne and Yvonne. Danny was a welder/fitter and Helen worked in schools and supermarkets but enjoyed her job as a barmaid the most.
A Special Occasion
Helen said: “I really enjoyed our Valentine’s Day celebrations. It’s always a special occasion for us as a couple since our wedding anniversary is the following day. The home went to a lot of effort with the gorgeous cake and beautiful decorations, it was lovely.”
Danny said: “Valentine’s Day is always great, but our wedding anniversary is my favourite day. As it is just about my wife and me. We were spoilt with lots of cards from our family and friends, it was a wonderful day!”
Liz Williamson, peripatetic manager at Kingsgate care home, said: “Helen and Danny are a lovely couple, and to be married for 63 years is quite an achievement.
“All our residents enjoyed Valentine’s Day and we had a lot of fun and making Helen and Danny’s wedding anniversary the next day special was the icing on the cake. Which was also delicious!”
