Green Fingered Balhousie Willowbank residents receive special delivery

Residents and staff at Balhousie Willowbank Care Home in Carnoustie are looking forward to a delivery of a special gardening bundle, donated as part of the local Dobbie’s Garden Centre community initiative.

Louise Hutton, a representative from Arbroath Dobbie’s Garden Centre, will present Willowbank with the gardening gifts worth £400 and will be there throughout the day to help transform Balhousie Willowbank’s outside areas with the generous donation.

With Spring in full swing, initiatives such as this, which are designed to help encourage residents and staff to engage and interact with their local community, will both brighten up the residents’ day and give them the chance to help create some beautiful gardens for them, their visitors and the local community to enjoy.

Jan Roberston, Balhousie Willowbank Care Home Manager commented:

“We’re absolutely delighted by the generous donation from the local Dobbie’s Garden Centre and to have Louise coming down to help spruce up our gardens. Many of our residents were once keen gardeners and it’s wonderful to see how much joy they get from reliving those memories.”
