A very happy and special ceremony took place at Brunelcare’s Deerhurst Care Home on Sunday 14th August:
Malcolm and Jan De Gay renewed their wedding vows after 53 years of marriage, surrounded by 150 guests!
Malcolm has been living at Deerhurst since January 2015. His wife Jan lives nearby and volunteers at the home; visiting regularly to see Malcolm who receives live-in care at the home.
The care home offered to hold their renewal of vows ceremony and happily set about organising the large-scale celebrations with the help of volunteers and Brunelcare staff, providing both the ideal party venue and one most suitable for Malcolm.
Jan said, “It was beyond all expectations and will be a lasting memory. Thanks to everyone at Deerhurst!” and Malcolm added, “It was brilliant. I could do it all again tomorrow!”
