Nightingale House – People, Pledges and Make a Difference

Type: Pledge

Tommy takes a visit to Nightingale Care Home to launch a pledge tree with staff.

Massive thanks to Martin Kerr, Catherine Thompson, David Carrigan and colleagues at Nightingale House Residential Care Home in Auchinleck for inviting Tommy to speak.

Tommy and Catherine met last month, when he was speaking at the East Ayrshire Care Home Forum and Catherine was keen for Tommy to visit Nightingale House and meet the staff there.

We are looking forward to following the story of the Nightingale House pledge tree and taking part in What Matters to You Day

A few staff handed Tommy pledges on the day with more being made and collected by Catherine over the coming weeks that we will add to the page.

Thank you for a brilliant afternoon.
