When the Stork Brought a Bucket
What does the stork bring? Babies is usually the answer.
Unless you live in Fergus House in Dyce.
The residents of the popular Bon Accord Care Home had a visit from some cheerful volunteers from oil services company Stork, who brought shovels, buckets and a lot of elbow grease.
Stork has been supportive of Bon Accord Care over the years and when COVID hit, their staff were keen to help out in any way possible.
Kathleen Cruickshank is the manager at Fergus House. She said:
“We have long standing ties with Stork as we are all part of the same community here in Dyce. Having them here to help get the gardens in order has been welcomed by the residents and staff, who really appreciate what they have done.”
The volunteers had a great time, with the residents keeping a close eye on their progress.
Nikki Morris, an HSEQ Advisor at Stork was one of the volunteers who rolled up her sleeves. She said:
“It’s been an absolute pleasure to come round and help out. The outdoor spaces are so important now more than ever. We even got a few waves from the residents…in fact I’m pretty sure one of them was telling us to get back to work when we sat down for a break!”
The volunteers will be back soon to finish the garden and hopefully be able to have a cuppa with the residents and admire their work!
