Collisdene Care Centre in Strathaven Celebrates Community Roots with ‘Trees of Life’ Gesture

Collisdene Care Centre in Strathaven, comprising of three wonderful houses operated Canterbury Care, has expressed its gratitude to several key members of its community through the presentation of exclusive Trees of Life artworks.

This unique initiative highlights the appreciation and strong bond shared between the care centre and its local community partners and friends.

Crafted by the residents themselves, these gifts serve as a poignant reminder of the invaluable support and generosity extended by these organisations and individuals to the residents and staff of Collisdene Care Centre.
