Bath care home residents treated to fun day out by taxi drivers

6 Aug 2019

 

The elderly residents of a care home in Bath were treated to a fun day out by some kindly cabbies this week.

 

The taxi drivers, led by Paul Roles, took the residents and staff of Winfield Lodge Residential Care Home on a trip to Bath City Farm.

The event took place on 5 August after Mr Roles enlisted the help of a number of other cabbiesz. Mr Roles had discussed the idea with Izzy Guest, manager of the care home, who coincidentally he had met during an unrelated event.

 

According to Somerset Live, Mr Roles explained that Ms Guest was highly supportive of the idea.

 

The taxi drivers were also able to take residents who were wheelchair-users because the cabs are all wheelchair accessible vehicles.

 

Mr Roles stated that all the residents had a great time interacting with the farm animals, and enjoyed some tea and cake afterwards.

 

He explained that he had been inspired to do something after seeing events organised by cabbies take place in other cities around the UK.

 

Ms Guest stated that the residents had a day to remember and that everybody was very friendly and helpful.

 

Bath and North East Somerset Liberal Democrat’s took to Twitter to say: “What a lovely act of kindness! Such a wonderful idea from Paul Roles and fellow Bath cabbies Mike Bean and Stephen Lasota.”
