John McCabe, Head Chef at Preston House Glenrothes, organised a collection of Easter eggs for the pupils of John Fergus School Glenrothes and the Childrens Ward at Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy. The response from staff, residents and their families was tremendous.
John would like to thank everyone for their support, including Ryan Wallace who organised a collection at our Head Office too. In total over 100 eggs were handed in.
A few pupils from John Fergus School called in to Preston House to meet the residents and choose an Easter egg for each of the 24 pupils at the school. The remaining eggs were delivered to the Victoria Hospital in time for Easter.
An Egg-cellent result!

The Activities Co-ordinators from each of Kingdom Homes care homes took time out for their homes to tour round each home in the Group singing carols for the residents.
Craigie House residents Jack & Margaret Robertson and Nancy Donnelly wished for a trip to Edinburgh’s Christmas Market and so an outing was organised for the three of them. As you can see they all had a lovely day out.
John McCabe, Head Chef at Preston House in Glenrothes, organised a collection within the nursing home for toys and sweets for children in hospital over Christmas. Leaving a box in reception John was amazed by the huge response as the donations came piling in and the box had to be emptied to make room for all the lovely toys and goodies handed in by residents, visitors, suppliers and staff.
Here they are as the appeal ended and the donations were split between the Sick Kids Hospital in Edinburgh and the Childrens Ward at the Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy. John would like to offer his thanks to everyone who supported the appeal.
Two of Preston House residents – John McDowall and Alice Davidson accompanied John to the two hospitals to deliver the goodies.
