A special celebration for Veronica

< Return to Blog list | Feb 12, 2016

Last week, Veronica, a customer from Ashleigh Wellbeing Hub, Basildon, celebrated the big 7 – 0. Sharing the day’s celebrations with her twin brother, Veronica was surrounded by her friends and the staff members who helped her celebrate the big day with cakes and presents.

Veronica said; “I wasn’t expecting this at all! Especially the cake and the presents. My friends have made today so special. I have been spoilt and it’s not finished yet as I have a big family celebration when I get home!”

Veronica’s younger years were spent in customer service roles, with her favourite job being at the local Boots in Basildon.

Veronica enjoys her time at the hub, where she has made strong friendships with other customers.

When we asked her what her secret is to a long and healthy life, Veronica told us: “It’s simple! You’ve got to keep active and keep the mind as busy as the body! I like to bake and really enjoy taking myself down to the shops to pick up lots of tasty ingredients. I also am a dab hand at Boccia.”

Happy 70th birthday Veronica!
