Cambridge Care Home Has “Fairy-Tail” Day Swimming with Mermaids

Individuals supported by Mill Lane care home in Cambridge were treated to a spectacular swimming session with Twinkle the Mermaid.

Mill Lane is a residential care home that provides personal care to people with learning disabilities and autism, enabling them to live meaningful lives that include control, choice and independence.

The individuals had a 30-minute pool session with Twinkle, a performing mermaid, Miss Ocean World Europe 2021 and a qualified free dive instructor, where they were able to swim with her and have the full mermaid experience.

They then had a further half an hour to ask her questions and chat about life as a mermaid.

Alex Shears, interim manager at Mill Lane, said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to Twinkle the Mermaid for spending the afternoon with the individuals we support.

“They absolutely love all things fairy tale based, especially mermaids, so this was a dream come true.

“Twinkle was absolutely brilliant and everyone left the sessions on a high. It was lovely.”

Jennifer Hamilton Wason, an individual supported by Mill Lane, said “Thank you Twinkle, I loved it. I’d like to do it again.”
