At 91, Mollie is our new poster girl

At 91 years young, Mollie Towns has become a model for care home group Balhousie Care.

A resident of Balhousie Broughty Ferry, Mollie and her captivating smile are gracing leaflets, posters and other collateral as part of Balhousie Care’s latest marketing campaign. She was chosen to illustrate the company’s new ‘confidence in care’ campaign, which bears the slogan ‘Caring for our loved ones has never been more important’.

Mollie, a fan of fiddle music, dancing, Kettle Chips and the odd glass of wine, moved into Balhousie Moyness almost eight years ago following the death of her husband David. The couple met in Glasgow while both worked at the same local garage. They lived in Troon and Sheffield, before returning to Scotland in 1984 and settling in Broughty Ferry.

A former accounts clerk and receptionist, Mollie is the proud grandmother of Meghann and David. She was an active member of her local church and woman’s guild. Says her daughter Susan: “She has a great love of dancing and Scottish fiddle music, along with a glass of wine and packet of Kettle Chips! She continued to dance several times a week until she was 80 years old. She still enjoys her social life.”

Gillian Drummond, Brand & Comunications Manager at Balhousie Care Group, said: “Mollie was part of a photoshoot done at Balhousie Moyness. Her beautiful smile and that lovely fluffy jumper just spoke to us – they’re heartwarming pictures and fit in with our campaign perfectly. She’s the perfect model and poster girl.”
