Pensioners set to travel in style

PENSIONERS will ride in style - by limousine - to their Christmas party in Sheffield tomorrow thanks to a sprinkling of seasonal goodwill.

Ten residents at Littledale Nursing Home on the Manor are to be taken in the glamorous vehicles to The Gun pub on the Wicker - after bosses at Co-operative funeral services offered to help.

Kath Sylvester, activities co-ordinator at the home on Prince of Wales Road, said: “This is a massive help because it is hard getting transport for all the elderly people.

“I’m sure that for most of the residents it will be the first time they’ve ever been in a limousine!”
