A student nurse has delighted a resident at Muirton House in Blairgowrie after organising a surprise delivery from his favourite football club.
Stuart McGregor, who is a lifelong St Johnstone fan, was gifted a signed ball and personalised gift set from his boyhood club after being contacted by one of Stuart’s carers at Muirton House.
The signed ball features signatures from a number of Stuart’s favourite players, including Jason Kerr, Scott Tanser and Stevie May, while his gift set includes a brand-new St Johnstone water bottle and wallet.
The gifts were organised by Becky McGregor, a student nurse who works at the home on Essendy Road, as a way of saying thank you to Stuart for being so friendly and welcoming to her during her time at the home. Staff at Muirton House are also hopeful of organising a visit from some of the St Johnstone players in the future, when visiting restrictions allow.
Upon receiving the gifts, Stuart said: “I can’t believe that the club have sent me these personalised gifts. The St Johnstone players have been my heroes since I was a boy.”
Becky, who organised his gift, said: “It became clear almost instantly that Stuart is a huge Saints fan. He is always following the games and talks about the club very passionately.
“He is an amazing character with a great sense of humour, and I thought the gifts would be a nice way to say thank you to Stuart for being so kind and welcoming to me during our time together at Muirton House.”
