A Northampton care home resident got to attend her son's wedding with help from the staff who picked out her best outfit and did her hair for the big day.

Members of staff at Timken Grange worked alongside Betty Lee’s son Vaughn to arrange for her to attend his wedding at St Mary's Church in Bozeat on on June 26.

Lifestyle manager Helen Brace escorted the 91-year-old to the wedding and the reception at Vaughn's home in the village afterwards.

Betty thoroughly enjoyed having photos taken and spending time with her family including her grandsons and niece, according to Helen.

The whole day was an absolute delight and clearly meant so much to Betty and her family, with the grandmother saying: “I’ve had a lovely time today."
