Annie the alpaca visited a Glasgow development to celebrate a special milestone.

Livingwell, in Pollok, run by Wheatley Care hosted the furry guest to mark the scheme's five-year anniversary.

Wheatley Homes supports people over 55 at Brockburn Terrace to live independently and held several parties across the city to mark the birthday.

Residents and staff enjoyed food, music and dancing, and had the opportunity to meet and pet Annie the alpaca.

Susan O’Neill, aged 61, said: “I had a wonderful time at the party. Annie the alpaca was so lovely and friendly, and I really enjoyed meeting her.”

Laura Pluck, Group Director of Communities at Wheatley Group, said: “We were delighted to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Livingwell with such a fun and memorable event.

"The alpaca was a real hit with our customers, and it was great to see them all enjoying themselves."

Research has shown that animal-assisted therapy can improve mood, lower blood pressure and increase physical activity.

Tenants at Livingwell had previously received a visit from miniature Shetland ponies from Therapy Ponies Scotland.
