Former Ulsterbus driver Albert Moore celebrates his 100th Birthday in style thanks to Translink
Former Ulsterbus driver, Albert Moore, was delighted when Translink’s Ballymena team helped him to celebrate his 100th Birthday in style yesterday (Tuesday 21 June).
A resident at the local Craigdun Nursing Home, the staff said they have enjoyed a lovely few weeks celebrating with Albert, who would tell you himself, that he has been a bus driver “all his life”.
The Translink team took a bus down to the care home, knowing it would be the perfect surprise, and took him out for a short trip with his extended family before presenting him with a few lovely gifts.
The trip was extra special as it was also Albert’s first time leaving the care home since before covid!
A spokesperson for Craigdun commented:
“Special thanks to Raymond Edwards and his team at Translink for arranging to take Albert out on the bus for his birthday.
“Also, a big thank-you to the local children from Buick Memorial Primary School, and The Diamond Primary School, Cullybackey, for their fabulous birthday cards they made for the occasion!”
Happy Birthday Albert!
