Special guest and friend of the Millbeck care home, actor Craig Heaney visited the home this week and performed stand-up comedy for ‘Global Belly Laugh Day’. 

Local actor Craig’s career includes staring in ‘Band of Brothers’, parts in movies ‘Goal!’ and sequel ‘Goal! 3’, an appearance in movie ‘The Dark Night’, as well as a variety of other television roles.  

Craig’s Gran used to live at Millbeck and so he has found memories of the home. He has in the past regularly played the piano during his visits for the enjoyment of all residents. 

Home Manager Nicola said: “As soon as I found out it was ‘Global Belly Laugh Day’, Craig was the first person that I thought of. 

“It is very good of him to volunteer his time. He is extremely talented and personable, and well-loved in the home. Everyone really enjoyed his performance on Wednesday and would like to thank him.”
