Film actor Vincent Regan, best known for roles in epics such as 300, Troy and Clash of the Titans, added a touch of stardust by putting in an appearance at the 10th anniversary celebrations at Ipswich-base care agency Beyea Care.
The business was launched in 2005 by Mary Hunt, who previously worked as a senior nurse at Ipswich Hospital and who also happens to be Vincent’s sister.
Mary said: “At the time, 10 years ago, I was a little disillusioned working for the NHS so I decided to start my own business. I had never done anything like this before, it was a bit of a risk, and some of my family thought I was absolutely bonkers.”
She added: “Running your own care agency is a seven-days-a-week job, but through hard work, we have become well known in Suffolk and I am delighted to have reached this anniversary.
“None of this could have happened without the hard work and dedication of our carers. Today is a golden opportunity to thank each and every one of them. There would be no Beyea Care without these special people.”

The care agency also marked the milestone by launching a new finance division which aims to help people they care for with money management to allow them to remain in their homes much longer.
Mary explained: “We have worked closely with Natwest bank to open up a finance division allowing us to help our clients start their own individual bank accounts and offer advice on money management. Giving clients greater financial independence enables them to remain in their own home for as long as possible.

“Naturally, this is not always possible. But I know from experience that some clients do better surrounded by their own things and in a familiar environment rather than a care home or hospital setting.”
