Holmes Care Worker Takes To The Skies

A Fife care home worker has braved a skydive to treat residents at Preston House, part of the Holmes Care Group, to new garden furniture.

Tracey Sayle, manager at Preston House, challenged herself to take on a skydive to help deck out the home’s garden with a suite of new furniture ready for the residents to enjoy in the summer months, with many residents looking forward to spending time outdoors chatting and basking in the sunshine.

Tracey was able to raise over £3000, and a celebration was held by residents, relatives and staff at the home after she came back from her adventure.

Preston House has recently received glowing feedback in a Care Inspectorate report, achieving 4s and 5s across the board for the high standard of care and positive environment at the home. The staff were recognised for their commitment to delivering compassionate and person-centred care.

Tracey said: “I’m delighted that I was able to raise this much money for the residents – it surpassed my expectations! I was definitely nervous before the skydive, but it was all worth it in the end to see the smiles on the residents’ faces.”
