Residents and guests at our newly opened Savernake View Care Home, in Marlborough, were delighted to welcome Rugby star Kyran Bracken MBE, on Saturday morning.
Kyran, also well known since his international rugby career as winner of ITV’s Dancing on Ice, was invited to Savernake View to entertain residents and guests in the first of what will be a series of celebrity visits to the home.
Speaking about his career as England rugby captain, and the turn his career took after his popular appearance on Dancing on Ice in 2007 where he took the title with partner Melanie Lambert, he entertained residents and guests with anecdotes and comical stories, as well as speaking passionately about what it takes to achieve success as a professional sportsperson.
Sarah Jacka, Client Services Manager at the home said, ‘One of our residents, Gloria, had told me she was intending to have a joke with Kyran when he arrived but wouldn’t say what it was. It was only when she was introduced to Kyran that she asked if he had brought Will Carling with him! Kyran took it all in good spirit and joked with her throughout the event. It was such fun and Gloria really enjoyed it too.’
