Some of the female residents at Milton Lodge care home in Colchester, Essex, England, had repeatedly asked the staff if they could hire ‘butlers in the buff’ to serve them dinner.
Their wishes were finally granted this week, and a group of ‘Hunks in Trunks’ came to serve them a three-course dinner.
The 11 elderly ladies went on to invite their daughters and granddaughters to the show, and they even got a massage from the muscular men.
According to the activities co-coordinator at Milton Lodge, Claire Martin, the woman behind the idea was 89-year-old Joan Corp.
“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?” – she says.
Doll Jenkins, 99, is the oldest resident at Milton Lodge, and she said that she loved the butlers. She even requested for them to come back for her 100th birthday.
The coordinator added that the ladies were really excited. They had all dressed up and have been giggling all along.
Gladas Smith, 82, a resident at the home, said that it was a good evening because it made a change in their ordinary lives, and the boys did well.
The elderly ladies were even offered some relaxing therapy.
The coordinator adds that the butlers asked the ladies if they wanted a massage, and they all said ‘yes’.
“They didn’t stop laughing the whole night, they absolutely loved it.”
A Sparkle initiative is run by Milton Lodge, in which the staff raises money to grant the wishes of residents.
