Marchglens Christmas Festivities

At Marchglen in Alloa we had a busy December!

The Christmas Fete was a huge success with a great variety of stalls participating in the event, with one being our own selling reindeer dust, Santa keys and sweetie cups the residents had made. We also had our grotto with Santa & Mrs Claus for the children to visit, a Tulliallan pipe band and the Forefront school performed for everyone.

Resident Helen had a stall selling handmade frames and some pictures she had coloured in, she finds this therapeutic, she donated all money raised to the MS Society.  Between her stall and a belly dancing fundraising night the next day, Helen raised over £500 for MS Society!

Marchglen’s Christmas fundraising all month generated over £800 for our residents funds. The belly Dancers who performed for us at the home also had a separate fundraising event in which they donated over £500 to our residents funds.

The residents have also been entertained by Craigbank primary school, class P7 visited the residents and sung Christmas carols for us all. The residents always enjoy a visit from the children and we also presented them with a selection box and reindeer dust each. The children also go round all our residents chatting, it is always nice to see everyone together. We look forward to welcoming them back soon.

Marchglen provides nursing care in a purpose built environment for up to 36 people in four small homes within the grounds. Each home provides different types of care and support including physical disabilities, learning disabilities and challenging behaviours in both young adults and elderly.
