June Keys, a resident at The Firs care home in Codnor, had her final wish come true by attending a Derby County match at the weekend in an executive box organised by Ashmere Derbyshire.
Life-long fan of Derby County, June, 75, is receiving palliative nursing care at The Firs and expressed her wish to carers after developing lung cancer.
Her daughter, son, daughter-in-law and grandson were all there to there to enjoy the Derby v Blackburn match with June.
She said: “I had an absolutely brilliant time with my family, and I would like to thank the carers who made it possible.”
“My late husband and I used to visit Derby County football at every given opportunity and I’m so thankful I got to go again because it brought back some fantastic memories.”
At Ashmere Derbyshire, we make every effort to try and fulfil resident’s final wishes and are very glad June got to experience this fantastic event.
