Meallmore charity fun day for care home residents and staff


A Bearsden care home shows appreciation to its staff and residents at a charity fun day on Friday 11th June.

The management team at Antonine House, part of the Meallmore group, rewarded staff and residents for all of their hard work and patience throughout the pandemic with a jam-packed fun day.

Mixed teams of staff and residents took part in an afternoon of games and competitions, including quizzes and a talent competition, to help raise more than £300.00 for a local charity, North West Foodbank.

Local MSP, Rona Mackay, was in attendance to thank staff at Antonine House and to meet some of the residents joining in the celebrations. Ms Mackay also lent her expertise in judging the talent competition.

Amanda King, Care Home Manager at Antonine House, commented: “This has been an incredibly challenging year for all of us, however with restrictions now slowly lifting across the country, we wanted to say a massive thank you to both our staff and residents for all they did throughout the pandemic. Everyone at Antonine House as had such a positive impact on the care home this year, and we cannot be more thankful for everyone’s commitment to ensuring the care home remains a safe working and living environment.

“As well as thanking our staff, residents and their relatives for being so supportive, we wanted to give something back to the local community. I’m thrilled to say that our charity fun day raised £300.00 for North West Foodbank to help those in need. I’d also like to thank Rona Mackay MSP for her attendance and excellent judging of the talent competition! We hope everyone enjoyed their fun day.”

Rona Mackay, MSP for Strathkelvin and Bearsden, added: “The charity fun day was a fantastic event to celebrate the staff and residents at Antonine House. It was great to meet everyone and even help judge the talent competition. Everyone should feel immensely proud for all of their hard work throughout the pandemic.”
