Strelley care home banks on a makeover

Three Nottingham based Royal Bank of Scotland workers rolled up their sleeves yesterday, after swapping their pens and computers for paint brushes and rollers, to give the Linby Drive Care Home a make over.

The Linby Drive Care Home in Strelley is a residential home offering support for people with learning disabilities. The Care Home prides itself on providing the best possible standard of physical, emotional and social care for its residents, but knew they needed help in creating a dedicated sensory room.

With this in mind, the team from RBS Banking in Nottingham - Ian Rawson, Chris Wright and Sam Lewis - purchased the necessary paint and material, and set to work.

Ian Rawson, Development Manager at RBS Banking, who took part in the decorating, said: "At RBS we have a Customer Charter which aims 'to support the communities in which we live and work' and more importantly we have people who really want to help good causes such as Linby Drive Care Home. Chris, Sam and I knew we were taking a lot on, but we still managed to completely decorate the new sensory room in a day. It was a lot different to our day job, but so rewarding to know we have done something that really will make a difference."
