Another Dream fulfilled…

Please be as excited as we are, today another “Dream” came true for one of our residents with many, many thanks to Rocky Troiani and his friends Adam Murdin, Paul Willis and Ann Colquitt.

92 year old Molly was collected in grand style and driven from Folkestone to Bexhill on Sea to have her dream of riding along the beach on a bicycle. Well, in actual fact a Trishaw (next best and fun thing to actually peddling herself).

The trishaw ride was compliments of Cycling without Age Bexhill, and Liz MacPherson of Sussex Community Development Association was absolutely delightful and extremely helpful.

The weather was not ideal, the wind was blowing at 40 mph but – and gratefully a big BUT – the rain held back and a little sun come out for the hour we needed it.

Rocky Troiani is completely responsible for making this dream come true, and many thanks go to very kind owner of Nell’s Cafe in Gravesend who responded to our call looking for a Trishaw and put Rocky in touch with Pelham House.

A little about this man called Rocky Troiani. He hails from Chatham in Kent and has been doing charity work for over six years, responding to needs where ever he hears of them. Rocky takes care of his mother and owns a small car sales business while spending many hours filling wishes and needs of others. His love is to see smiles and joy in others and likes nothing better than to “see a plan come together”.

The beautiful convertible 34 year old Daimler, courtesy of Premier Wedding Cars Bexhill on Sea, arrived and Molly and her friend Colin were comfortably seated and driven the almost 2 hour distance to Bexhill.

A HUGE THANK YOU to all involved in this dream. Everyone has been so kind and Molly has a wonderful smile and a memory that will last forever. In fact as Molly arrived home, as she was getting out of the car, she said that this was a day she would remember forever, and ever and ever!
