A Diamond Anniversary at Goonawarra

One of the residents at our Goonawarra aged care home in Sunbury, Charlie, recently celebrated his 60th wedding anniversary with his wife, Betty!

On the day, our staff presented the happy couple with a gift and lots of good wishes – all the while not giving away the big surprise party that their daughters and our lifestyle team had planned!

The party itself was a highlight, with residents and staff gathering to celebrate Charlie and Betty’s incredible love story. There was even a surprise vow renewal!

When Charlie said a few words, he happily told those in attendance he’s looking forward to the next 60 years married to Betty – we can’t wait either, Charlie.
