Strictly Star Surprises Superfan, Barbara for Her 92nd Birthday…


Superfan Barbara was being cared for at our Coventry Myton Hospice and was in for a surprise for her 92nd birthday from the wonderful Giovanni Pernice from Strictly Come Dancing! 

Barbara, the self-proclaimed superfan, had a life-sized cut out of Gio next to her bed, and her face lit up whenever asked about it.

As soon as our wonderful team heard about this, they made it their mission to get a very special birthday surprise for Barbara, and Gio was only too happy to help!

Mark, Barbara’s son, said:

Mum was over the moon with the video and it really made her day. I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone involved for arranging this and making it possible for her.

Thank you so much to Gio and his wonderful team for going above and beyond and while we may be biased, in our eyes we truly do have the most caring team in the world!
