A GROUP of elderly female residents at a retirement home have been served some cheeky dinners — after ‘butlers in the buff’ came to visit them.
The care home granted the wish of their elderly residents and hired a group of scantily clad butlers, who served up a three-course meal to the ladies — with a side order of sauce.
There were 23 guests in total,11 of them residents at the Milton Lodge in Colchester, Essex.
Claire Martin, activities co-coordinator at the retirement home, said it was 89-year-old Joan Corp who had initiated it all.
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?’
Doll Jenkins, the oldest resident aged 99, said she loved the butlers in the buff and has requested for them to be invited back for her 100th birthday.
Claire added: ‘The ladies were really excited, they had all been giggling and they dressed up.’
Resident Gladys Smith, aged 82, said: ‘I had the front seat. It made quite a change and the boys done well. It was a good evening.’
The ladies were even treated to some relaxing 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.
‘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.
