Fife care home resident gets the flight of her life!


Peggy Brookes, who lives at Roselea House, one of Kingdom Homes care homes located in Cowdenbeath, Fife, was walking back from a trip to the shops with Margaret Stewart, the care home manager when a helicopter passed overhead. Peggy said “I wouldn’t mind a trip in a helicopter as I’ve never been in one.”

Unknown to Peggy, Margaret submitted a wish on her behalf to Kingdom Homes Wishing Well initiative and we were delighted to be able to arrange this. Peggy was accompanied by her daughter, grand-daughter and great-grand-daughter as well as care staff from Roselea House.

Peggy’s trip took her over Rosyth dockyard and the bridges over the Forth giving her a excellent view of the new Queensferry Crossing bridge which was officially opened by the Queen a few days later. Peggy loved her first trip in a helicopter at the age of 97 and said later “It was just a remark that I made never thinking it would actually happen. I was thrilled to get the chance to be able to get a close up of the new Queensferry Crossing.” Peggy’s inspirational story just proves it’s never too late to try something new!
