Intergenerational Connections at Crimond

In the heart of Fraserburgh, a heartwarming story unfolds as Crimond House Care Home steps up to support the local youth football team, Fraserburgh Link Up YFC-under 15s. This generous act highlights the care home's commitment to community engagement and bridges generations, fostering a unique bond between the young athletes and the elderly residents.

Supporting Local Talent:

Crimond House Care Home, a part of Meallmore Ltd, has significantly contributed to £1,240 to sponsor the local youth football squad. This sponsorship has provided the team with brand-new kits for the current season, proudly displaying the care home's logo. This gesture is more than just financial support; it's a symbol of the care home's dedication to nurturing local talent and promoting sports among the local youth.

Intergenerational Connections: More Than Just Football

The relationship between Crimond House and the football team goes beyond mere sponsorship. In a recent heartwarming visit to the care home, the young players had the opportunity to meet and interact with the residents. This exchange was about showing off their new kits and building connections across generations, sharing stories, and fostering mutual respect and understanding.

A Community's Pride

Pauline Gerrie, the manager at Crimond House, couldn't hide her excitement: "It's been a privilege to sponsor the local youth football club. Watching these boys grow and knowing we're part of their journey is just fantastic!"

Bryan Falconer, the team's Head Coach, shared, "We're absolutely delighted with the sponsorship. These tracksuits are a game-changer, especially in the cold, windy weather. We'll wear them with pride, especially for our big game in Edinburgh!"

Joe McHattie, the team's captain, added, "Thanks to Meallmore for the new tracksuits. We've worked hard, and this support means the world to us. We're ready to top the league and win more cups!"

Looking Ahead

The team, buoyed by this support, is looking forward to competing in the Scottish Cup and aiming to top the A League. Lewis, a player from the team, extended his gratitude to Crimond House, emphasising how the sponsorship has unified the team and bolstered their determination to win the league.
