Four male patients with a crippling brain disorder were treated to a night at a LAPDANCING CLUB and casino by their nurses.

Girls waiting to give them individual dances at Divas Gentlemen’s Club included former Page 3 girl Linsey Dawn Mckenzie.

And the evening was topped off with free drinks and spins on the club’s roulette wheel.

The four — all suffering from Huntington’s disease, a genetic disorder affecting movement which gradually destroys brain functions — are all cared for at Millaton Court, a private nursing home in Launceston, Cornwall.

Special Request

Physical symptoms of the condition occur in the late 40s and 50s and include jerky movements, slurring of speech and loss of muscle control.

The home’s more USUAL activities include horse-riding, swimming and classical music trips but the special night out was a request from one of the four.

Mental health nurse Katie Uglow told a British newspaper: ‘One of the guys said he wanted to go for a lapdance, so we offered the trip to everyone else and three others said they wanted to go along too.

Free Spins

‘At the end of the day, these guys are adults and our job is to minimise the impact of the disease in their lives.

Alan Whitehead, who runs Divas in Newquay, said: ‘We were delighted to host them and gave our services for free.

“The girls had a great time and were queuing up to give the chaps dances.’
