Art In Care Exhibition Draws The Crowds

By 31st May 2018News

Kingdom Homes recently held an art exhibition in Kirkcaldy’s Community Hub to showcase the artistic talents of our residents. The event aimed, not only to show off the art work, but also to show that living in a care home can be a brand new beginning with the possibility to try something new.

The exhibition was a great success, attracting many visitors over the five days. Some of the projects which have been ongoing since the start of this year, enabled the wider community to be involved with schools, nurseries and residents’ families working together with the residents to produce some fine paintings, crafts and sculptures.

We asked Raith Rovers, our local football team to perform the official opening and they were delighted to help, sending Craig Easton and Roary Rover to cut the ribbon watched by a few of our residents, staff and children from Little Einsteins Nursery in Kirkcaldy (main picture above).
