Care Home Residents Spread Joy Before Festive Season

Muirton House care home, in Blairgowrie is supporting Perth and Kinross Foodbank this winter by opening a donation drop off point within the home.

Staff, residents, family members and the public are being encouraged to bring their contributions in to the home to be redistributed to less fortunate families during the colder months, in particular small jars of coffee, UHT milk, long life fruit juice, tinned fish and jam.

Perth and Kinross Foodbank is part of the Trussell Trust, which is a nationwide network of food banks which offer support and emergency food to people living in poverty.

As part of the initiative, staff and residents at Muirton House Care Home chose to contribute to Perth and Kinross Foodbank, supporting those in need at what can often be a more difficult time of year.

Catherine Russell, home manager at Muirton House Care Home, said: “At Muirton House Care Home, we are proud to be part of our local community. It’s important to all of us at the home that we support good causes in Blairgowrie.

“The volunteers at Perth and Kinross Foodbank do an amazing job and we’re pleased to be able to get behind their amazing work.”

“We’re pleased to be able to make a contribution, however small, to make sure that nobody in our area is left without food on the table.”
