Residents meet Olympic Gold Medallist at Supermarket opening

Residents from Alexandra Care Home in Newton-le-Willows were invited to the opening of a local supermarket, where they met Olympic Gold medallist Matthew Langridge, a member of the rowing team.

Karen Fitzgerald, Home Manager, explained: “Matthew brought his gold medal to the opening, and gave all of the residents a chance to hold it and wear it. One of the residents remarked how heavy the medal was, and was happy to give it back to Matthew. Once the store was officially opened the residents returned home, and enjoyed an afternoon of sport whilst tucking into some strawberries and cream.”
