Walking The Queensferry Crossing For Charity

By | Barrogil House News, Kingdom Homes News, News, Windmill House News

When the chance arose for the public to walk the new Queensferry Crossing before it officially opened as a motorway Liam Duncan, Maria Hutchison and John Park applied to take part. They also asked people to sponsor their walk to raise funds for The Brain Tumour Charity – Melissa Crouch Fund, a charity that is special to everyone associated with Kingdom Homes Ltd.

The weather for the walk was ideal – dry, sunny and not too windy.

To date the total funds raised hasn’t been calculated but will be updated here as soon as all sponsorship money is collected in. Meantime Maria, John and Liam would like to thank all friends, family and colleagues who sponsored them.

 There was a chance to have their photos taken with Nicola Sturgeon before they set off.

 

 The views of the other two bridges and Port Edgar marina were spectacular.

There were some interesting statistics about the new crossing to read at various points on the way.

By | Craigie house News, Kingdom Homes News, News

Nancy Donnelly, who lives at Craigie House in Crossgates, submitted a request through the Wishing Well to go to a show. On learning that The Steamie was showing at the Adam Smith Theatre in Kirkcaldy Nancy chose to go there. The play is currently touring to celebrate it’s 30 year anniversary but Nancy hadn’t seen it previously. At the end of the day Nancy said she’d had a really lovely time!

 Here’s Nancy, ready for her day out, as they set off on our minibus from Craigie House.

First of all Nancy and Gemma, – Craigie’s Activities Co-ordinator, went for lunch at Home Farm View in Kirkcaldy.

Time for a wee selfie once they were settled in the theatre

Jumping Through Hoops To Make Rab’s Day

By | Kingdom Homes News, Methven House News, News

Another Kingdom Homes Wishing Well request fulfilled. This time it was for Robert (Rab) Gibson who lives at Methven House Nursing Home in Kirkcaldy.

Rab has been a life long supporter of Celtic Football Club and we were delighted to arrange his request to tour Parkhead Stadium. He was accompanied by his son Barry and staff members Corrine and Heather who are also life long Celtic fans. The group were made to feel incredibly welcome by the staff at Parkhead and we can’t thank them enough for their hospitality and kindness.

As the photographs here show everyone had an amazing day and Rab would like to thank everyone involved in making his wish come true.

North School Nursery Visit

By | Methven House News, News

The residents at Methven House Nursing Home were delighted to welcome some of the children from nearby North Primary School Nursery, back after their summer break.

 Together they made lovely bracelets from multi-coloured beads which the children were delighted to pose for the camera with.

Mrs Stowe accompanied the children on guitar singing some of the songs they have learned at the nursery much to the residents delight.

 After the singing there was just enough time for some fruit squash and biscuits before the children made their way back to school.

 The children were safely harnessed in together for their walk back to the nursery.
