James Raises Cash for The Brain Tumour Charity

By | Kingdom Homes News | No Comments

James Glencross, a chef at Fernlea House in Cardenden, has grown a mustache during the month of November to raise funds for The Brain Tumour Charity.

Colleagues, visitors to Fernlea House and James’s friend and family have sponsored him and watched the progress of his mustache over the 30 days. Thanks to their generousity James has raised a fabulous £323 for the Charity.

James says he will be glad to shave it off and return to his clean shaven appearance and has no plans for it to be a permanent feature of his face.

Well done James and thanks to those who sponsored him.

Open Day Is a Great Success

By | Kingdom Homes News | No Comments

The Open Day held at Albion House was a great success attracting many people interested in a career in care to attend and find out more about job opportunities within Kingdom Homes.

Representatives from Job Centre Plus offices throughout the area also attended along with Skills Development Scotland, Adult Basic Education and ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages).

The event, organised by Kingdom Training, gave those attending a insight into the Workbased Academy – a six week work placement combining practical experience in one of our care homes and formal training in our dedicated training centre. The Certificate awarded on successful completion of the placement encompasses 2 of the 6 units required for SVQ Level 2 in Health and Social Care.
