Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) has provided funding for a £4m, 60-bed nursing and residential care home in Glasgow.
The home, which is being constructed on the site of the former Bonnyholm Primary School, will provide a mix of elderly nursing and specialist dementia care.
Kevin McCormack, Relationship Director at Royal Bank of Scotland, said: “We’re proud to support a family-run business making such a positive impact on the local community. Not only is Bonnyholm Care Home going to deliver important facilities to the elderly in the South of Glasgow, it will also create a sizeable number of jobs for the local community. We wish the Shearer family every success with their latest venture.”
The project is in response to a tender issued by Glasgow City Council that was won by father and son John and Scott Shearer, who also operate Glenlivet Gardens care home in Glasgow, which was also financed by RBS.
John said: “We’re just a couple of months away from the completion of our latest care home, which we’re confident will be a welcome addition to the local area of Crookston. Thanks to the support from Royal Bank of Scotland, Bonnyholm Care Home has been expertly designed and purpose-built to provide first-class care services to the community. We’re confident it will follow in the same successful path as Glenlivet Gardens and we very much look forward to its opening in May.”
The development is expected to provide around 120 jobs for the local community.
