Jenny puts the jam on top for Blackwood after her hand foraged preserves earn powerful social care PR for Blackwood

Care PR for Blackwood thanks to jam make Jenny Gardner

A LOCAL care home in Edinburgh secured fantastic coverage after the regional manager smashed her fundraising target for the venue.

Jenny Gardner, who works for Blackwood, raised a staggering £1,000 for Broom Court Care Home in Stirling by selling more than 350 jars of homemade jam in just a few months – the ingredients for which she hand-foraged.

The money will allow the care home to rebuild a fully-accessible greenhouse with plants and space for vegetables to grow, after the previous one was damaged beyond repair by gale force winds last year.

The Broom Court tenants took great pride in completing their previous greenhouse duties and are already excited at the prospect of once again being able to experience the daily enjoyment and sense of achievement that the work brings.
