Robert and Pearline Celebrate 35th Anniversary in Style at Sky Garden Thanks to Camberwell Lodge

This week, Camberwell Lodge Care & Nursing Home in Southwark surprised couple Robert and Pearline with a special date at the Fenchurch restaurant located in Sky Garden, London, in celebration of their 35th Wedding Anniversary.

The date was arranged as part of the "Make a Wish" initiative by Country Court, the parent company of Camberwell Lodge. The Make a Wish initiative has seen residents from Camberwell Lodge and across the Country Court group enjoy special outings and activities, from boat trips and book launches to off-road driving and lots of family tea parties.

"It was a pleasure to arrange this for such a special couple."

Jessica O’Connell, Customer Relations Manager at Camberwell Lodge, commented:

“It was a pleasure to arrange this for such a special couple. We kept the location of their surprise anniversary date a secret until we arrived, which added to their anticipation. At Sky Garden, Robert and Pearline were impressed by the beautiful surroundings and described the experience as exceptional. They were particularly pleased with the Caribbean-inspired tasting menu, which is their favourite cuisine.”

"We first met 35 years ago"

During their visit, Robert and Pearline reminisced about how they met. Pearline explained:

"We first met 35 years ago. I was helping a friend with catering for a funeral wake, and Rob was attending. Rob spent the whole event in the kitchen because he enjoyed my cooking so much, and the rest is history.


Both of us had been previously married, but when we got together, we began to enjoy the little things in life and travelled to many different places and enjoyed going on cruises. Rob used to work as a Station Guard at Waterloo Station, and I am incredibly proud of all his achievements and how hardworking and dedicated he is to looking after his family.

We both have children from previous marriages and, although we didn’t have any children together, we have a wonderful big family.

Since Rob’s health declined, it has been difficult, but creating these special moments and continuing to live in the moment is priceless for both of us."

Camberwell Lodge Care & Nursing Home is committed to enhancing the lives of our residents through initiatives like "Make A Wish." We focus on creating joyful and meaningful experiences for our residents and their families.
