A Falmouth-based care home organised a helicopter trip for two residents as part of a seize the day initiative.

MHA Langholme organised the trip for two residents Mike Ogden and Mike Harris. The initiative encourages residents to re-experience activities or events from the past or to do something they would like to do for the first time.

The pair were accompanied by two staff members Linda Rowe and Carol Woodland and travelled from Falmouth to Perranporth.

The helicopter experience gave them a bird's eye view of Perranporth and was paid for by the home's amenity fund.

Linda Rowe, activities coordinator said: "The helicopter experience was great for the two residents and something I want to do for others, When I asked residents if this is something they want to do both Mikes were really keen and I am glad we did it for them."

"Afterwards they would not stop talking about it and had a great time and I was very happy to be a part of it, when we went back to the home and told other residents you could see some of them were interested and hopefully next year, I want to plan it for more residents," Linda Added.
