SHELL Stanlow stepped in to ensure summer got off to a sociable start for a group of older residents in Ellesmere Port.
The company first joined forces with Age Concern Cheshire last year to deliver a series of trips, treats and visits for pensioners.
The scheme proved to be a huge success and has provided numerous fun days out since its launch.
This year visits have included canal boat trips from the Boat Museum, outings to Llandudno, West Kirby, and the Anderton Boat Lift in Northwich as well as treats such as facials, manicures and massages.
Shell public affairs advisor Rachel Evans joined a group of older people during an organised party at Whitby Sports & Social Club.
Partygoers enjoyed a game of prize bingo and were entertained by a singer while they tucked into a tasty lunch.
Rachel said: “We are thrilled to team up with Age Concern Cheshire. They do some fantastic work nationally as well as locally.
“The party was a perfect example of this and it was also lovely to meet a number of former Stanlow employees and talk about how the site has changed over the years.”
Age Concern representative Barbara Lawton said: “Thanks to Shell’s generosity and support we will be able to expand this service into the Ellesmere Port community.
“The scheme will not only benefit our older clients it will also provide well earned respite for their carers, family and friends.”
