Today we celebrate love

Sunday, 14 February 2021

In the run up to Valentine’s Day, we caught up with one of the most perfect couples we know. Jean and Brian, who attend our Outreach sessions in Badsworth. Their love story began 27 years ago in 1993, where they met by chance through Brian’s work – transporting pigeons to France for racing.

The pair are inseparable and enjoy spending time together, particularly at Outreach, which they look forward to returning to.

'I think it’s marvellous, they can’t do enough for you. They are understanding, caring, compassionate and kind. It's the best thing I've done; it's really kept me going.' Jean explains.

During the pandemic Jean and Brian have had to isolate, but have been keeping busy at home;

'We watch TV, we read and do puzzles. The Hospice have been very good with sending puzzles through the post, they even brought some dinner for us one week. They do nice little gestures like they knitted a heart and sent it through the post to say that they're thinking about us. They are marvellous, they really are.'

We love the photo Brian sent to accompany their story, they're in the pub on an Emmerdale studio tour! Jean loves watching the soaps, and the pair particularly like the nineties reruns of Coronation Street that are on a weekday afternoon, we can't blame them, Jack and Vera are soap royalty!
