On Wednesday 20th July service user Wendy – who has been at Jane Percy House (JPH) since the Trust took over in 1995 – celebrated her 80th birthday. Service Manager Lindsey said of Wendy: “She is loved by all service users and staff and even with her limited communication is very much in charge at JPH.”


Wendy celebrated in style with afternoon tea along with a singer who provided the soundtrack for the day. The party was helped along with not one but two cakes –a delicious Victoria sponge sent to her by Irene (CEO), and a farm themed cake given to her by the JPH team. Wendy grew up on a farm with her family and still loves animals, so the cake was perfect for her.

Wendy had a fabulous time and the singer serenaded her which she thoroughly enjoyed.” (Lindsey Tate, Service Manager)
