A BROMSGROVE care home made a resident’s wish to attend a car show come true.

Lifelong car lover Bill Ewen, aged 83, and a resident at Care UK’s Chandler Court competed in a number of car shows across the UK for over 30 years with his MG Midget – and wished to attend a car show once again.

Upon hearing about his hobby, care home staff decided to get in touch with the North Worcestershire MG Car Club and organised a visit to make Bill’s wish come true.

On the day, the home arranged for Bill to have his very own car show where he was able to see a selection of MGs – one of which was the same model as his old beloved car.

Bill and the visitors from the club, spent hours chatting about MGs and competing in car shows.

Vongai Mushinga, home manager at Chandler Court, said: “We had a wonderful time with the Worcestershire MG Car Club, and Bill loved every minute of it.

“Bill is a car-fanatic and always shares fond memories of the MG Midget car he had in his younger years. Going all over the country at cars shows and winning awards – it’s fair to say his car trivia doesn’t fall short!

“The whole team worked hard to organise the event and we’re delighted we were able to make this happen for him – the joy in his eyes when he saw the exact same model said it all.”

Amanda, Bill’s daughter, added: “It was so lovely to see my Dad with a huge smile on his face while he enjoyed looking at the MGs.

“He was able to show photos and tell stories about his beloved car – it was a truly special day. I cannot thank the team at Chandler Court enough for making his wish come true.”
