Northfleet Care Home Residents get a Kick out of Football Match

It was ‘back of the net!’ for Dene Holm residents, Stan and Donald on Saturday as they enjoyed an eagerly anticipated day at the local football ground.

Football fanatics Stan Glazier and Donald Robertson were over the moon at the weekend, when staff accompanied them to Ebbsfleet Football Ground to watch a match.

Since the Covid-19 restrictions were brought in, the pair has been longing for the day they can finally get out to watch a match with a beer and that day finally came on Saturday, when they headed out to watch local team Ebbsfleet Vs Hampton & Richmond.

Christine Hutchinson, General Manager of Dene Holm said: “Stan and Donald had both been saying for ages how much they wanted to go to watch the football and enjoy a pint together, so we were delighted to finally be able to afford them that opportunity.

“They had such a great afternoon, particularly as Ebbsfleet won 2-0, and are already planning when they can get to their next match.”
