This week, at Sid Bailey Care Home in Brampton, resident Alan Hull, pledged his unbreakable allegiance to Sheffield United by visiting Meadowhall and indulging in some retail therapy at the official ‘The Blades’ store. Alan proudly bought himself a Blades towel, which now proudly resides on the wall of his room at Sid Bailey Care Home.
Alan’s room is now adorned with little reminders of his team, including pictures of his family who are also avid Blades’ fans. Alan expressed his joy relating to his trip, saying “I had such a lovely day, and being able to go to the store and buy some gifts was the cherry on top!”
Overall, the lovely day out meant a lot to Alan, and has brought a huge smile to his face, ensuring he remains in high spirits. Such an example of kindness awarded to Alan from the Sid Bailey Care Home is a testament to the care and support they give people in their home.
Since the age of 5, Alan accompanied his dad to both home and away matches. They met many iconic footballers from Sheffield United, such as Ted Burgin, Cecil Coldwell, and Gerry Summers, as well as Billy Sharpe. In his later years, when Alan was a manager of First Bus and South Yorkshire Transport, he and his coworkers were granted access to an executive box at Bramall Lane. As a result, they got to meet more Sheffield United footballers. Alan also says it would be a great joy for him to attend one of the Blades' matches again.
Sue Ravenhall, the registered manager of the home says “It is important that our residents have the chance to maintain their independence and wellbeing in a safe but enjoyable environment. Our priority is making sure our residents have the opportunity to explore the things they love and to put a smile on Alan’s face is no different.”
Sid Bailey is delighted to launch 'Stuffed with Love', a project to bridge the generational gap between the local community and its residents. By donating just £1, you can choose a name for our special teddy bear and create meaningful connections. All proceeds go to Cortonwood Comeback Community Centre, the charity chosen by Sid Bailey’s residents.
Find out more about the project by visiting Sid Bailey or by following them on Facebook. You can also join the Summer Fayre on the 12th of August, from 11am - 3pm, and meet the bear in person. Get involved and bring smiles to many!
