Let's dive into the highlights of this special celebration across Mayflower!

Mayflower Brighton was transformed into a royal extravaganza, as residents gathered for a birthday party fit for a king. The atmosphere was filled with live music that had everyone tapping their feet and a life-size cutout of His Royal Highness, added a touch of grandeur, and light-hearted humour, to the festivities. Oh, what a sight it was!

Meanwhile, at Mayflower Reservoir, the laughter was contagious as team member Binod donned a king’s robe, mask and crown, making everyone burst into hysterical laughter. Residents were also swooned by a fantastic performance by Brendon from Tripodi Funeral Services Fawkner, who had toes tapping and spirits soaring. We are grateful for their generous donation of time and talent.

And, let's not forget the lovely high tea with full service that added a touch of elegance to the day. It was heartwarming to see families joining the celebration, creating cherished memories with their loved ones.

Over at Mayflower Edith Bendall, residents were treated to an elegant high tea fit for royalty. It was a feast for a king with royal fine bone china adorning the tables and our talented in-house chefs prepared delicious homemade English-style treats like scones and ribbon sandwiches. The joy and contentment on everyone's faces was truly priceless.

The presence of families made the celebration even more meaningful, as generations came together to commemorate this special milestone. The shared laughter and love created an atmosphere of warmth and connection, making the event truly extraordinary.

As we reflect on these celebrations, we extend our heartfelt appreciation to the dedicated team members, volunteers, and generous donors who made it all possible. Their commitment and support brought abundant joy and a sense of belonging to our residents and their families.
