Christmas may be over for another year, but the warm and fuzzies are still being felt around Balhousie Alastrean.

Staff and residents at our Aberdeenshire care home wanted to say a huge thank you to energy giant Total Energies for what can only be described as in incredible donation.

During Christmas week, an elf from the firm delivered 20 festive hampers delivered to the Tarland home – to the delight of our residents and team. The hampers, beautifully packaged in red boxes with bows, contained fizz, biscuits, caramel fingers, chocolates, nibbles and fudge.

Said Home Manager Julie Suttar: “It was a lovely surprise for everyone, and so generous of Total Energies to think of us. The beautiful gift boxes went down as well as the contents – staff were fighting over them so that they could repurpose them for their own gift giving!”
