A surprise marriage proposal at Tameside care homeThere were tears all around when a man decided to propose to his girlfriend in front of her dad, a Resident at HC-One’s Kings Park care home in Ashton-under-Lyne, Manchester.

Before Christmas, Lewis contacted the care home to tell them that he was planning on proposing to his girlfriend, Karly.

He explained that it would be a much more beautiful moment if her dad witnessed the occasion, so with some careful planning, the Colleagues organised a “window visit” with the couple.

Her father was happy to see his daughter for a visit but was taken by surprise when Lewis dropped to one knee and produced a beautiful engagement ring.

Karly’s dad, along with the Residents and Colleagues of the home, cheered as Karly said ‘yes’ and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Karly commented: “Oh, thank you so much for letting us have our special moment!”

Colleagues at the home presented the newly engaged couple with a bottle of bubbly to congratulate them while Karly’s father simply couldn’t stop smiling.

The thoughtful engagement was a truly touching moment to everyone at the home and cheered Residents up on a cold day in lockdown.

Kings Park Deputy Home Manager, Rose, commented: “It was a really emotional moment and was beautiful to watch.”
