"He also joined in with the Facetimes, he thought it was great that Brian could see his sister each week on the screen and June (sister) thought is was a wonderful idea to include Bugsy.

"Charlie loves his football and Bugsy helped him write up the football results on his chart for the euros matches. He meet Brian’s son on a visit which was a lovely talking point.

"Bugsy really enjoyed helping the residents choose some words that mean care, as we are making key rings for all the fabulous staff here at The Lodge, and wanted to write on them what care means to our residents and chosen by the residents, they came up with some good ones - helpful, cheerful, secure, wanted, reassurance, inclusion and happy.

Brian who had the visit with his son said it was fun to have Bugsy with them.
