Things got a bit hot under the collar for a group of elderly women when they were visited by a couple of hunks.
Residents at Milton Lodge Care Home, in Essex, had been pleading with managers to grant their one ‘cheeky’ wish, to have their dinner served by a group of scantly clad beefcakes.
Well, their wish was finally granted when they were visited by ‘butlers in the buff’, who treated them to dinner and a show when they served the ladies a slap up three-course meal.
I was going to make a ‘meat and two veg’ joke here but I restrained myself.
But it wasn’t just the randy residents who got in on the action; 23 guests packed in for a sneaky peak, but only 11 were from the home – very clever.
Claire Martin is the activities co-coordinator at Milton Lodge, and said 89-year-old man-eater Joan Corp was the ring-leader and showed you are never too old to have a bit of fun.
She said: “Whenever you ask Joan what she wants that day she always says ‘a man’.
“So we weren’t surprised when she wanted it to be her wish.
“We had a chat here and everyone was really keen to support it.
“We had a look online and found a company called Hunks in Trunks.
“When they turned up we had to let them know what we wanted them to do.
“They had a three-course meal with a roast dinner. The ladies’ daughters and granddaughters came.
“We asked them to do some harmless flirting, it doesn’t matter how old you are, so why not?”
Safe to say the lads went down a storm with residents, especially with 99-year-old Doll Jenkins – the oldest resident at the home – who has already requested to have the butlers back for her 100th birthday.
Claire added: “The ladies were really excited, they had all been giggling and they dressed up.”
Gladas Smith, 82, also gave a five star review.
She said: “I had the front seat. It made quite a change and the boys done well.
“It was a good evening.”
But it wasn’t just dinner, the hunks took a real ‘hands on’ approach to their job, and offered the women some relaxation therapy.
Claire said: “They all had a massage, the butlers went around asking the ladies if they wanted a massage and they all said yes.
“After it had all finished, Doll told the staff she wanted them back for her 100th birthday, so we are going to have them back.
“They didn’t stop laughing the whole night, they absolutely loved it.”
Milton Lodge retirement home in Colchester runs a Sparkle initiative, where staff raise money to grant the wishes of residents.
