A touching tribute for Ron at Ty Eirin

Ty Eirin Care Home in Porth decided to pay a special tribute to their beloved resident and friend, Ron Jones, who sadly passed away earlier this year.

Ron was a great fan of Elvis Presley, and looked forward to attending the famous Porthcawl Elvis Festival every year, along with staff from the home. Chris Powell, a member of the domestic team at Ty Eirin, shared a love of the rock ’n’ roll singer, so wanted to honour Ron's memory in a more personal way.

As Ron’s funeral was held on the weekend of this year’s festival, Chris designed a special t-shirt to wear at the event, printed with photographs of Ron, to ensure that he would still be a big part of the festivities.

The photographs really capture Ron’s spirit and love of Elvis, and are a touching tribute to a much-missed resident.
