Anchor resident, Mr Jim Gallant, was welcomed as guest of honour at the official opening of a new Tesco store in Faringdon last week.
At 97 years old, Jim is one of Faringdon’s oldest residents and has lived at Anchor’s Feredune Court care home in Oxfordshire for just over two years. A Tesco shopper and shareholder for many years, Jim was thrilled to be invited to join store manager Carl Pettersson in cutting the ribbon declaring the store officially open.
Joined by his daughters, Feredune Court Business Manager Mandy Dobson and Care Manager Lorraine Carter, Jim said of the experience: “I am delighted that there is a Tesco store opening in Faringdon and even more delighted that I have been able to join in the launch celebrations with the community.”
