Carer at Layston Grove goes that extra mile for resident John
Hollie, a Care Assistant at Layston Grove, was having a one to one chat with resident John Bird one day about his days in the army, when she decided in her own time to contact the Brunswick Club Trust, of which John is a member, to see if she could gather some more information about his time with them.
The Brunswick Trust took no time at all to reply to Hollie, writing her a lovely letter and attaching photographs of John for her to share with him. They explained what a valued member of the Trust John had been since 1958, so much so he was sent a birthday card by Prince Phillip on his 90th birthday to thank him for his contribution!
John was overwhelmed and so grateful to receive the letter and photographs from Hollie, which took him back to those years he so fondly remembers.
