Beating up on Bruno


Posted on April 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Nightingale, a leading provider of care to older members of the Jewish community, recently hosted a visit from former British Commonwealth and former WBC Heavyweight Champion, Frank Bruno. The purpose of Frank¹s visit was primarily to open the new staff facilities wing which include dining rooms, lounges, a resource room, training room, large games room, and a gym. Frank had the opportunity of meeting with many of the home¹s 330 staff and was also able to say hello to groups of Nightingale residents, whose average age is 88. He was presented with a piece of pottery created by Nightingale resident Jack Plato. Frank, who originally came from the Wandsworth area where the 305-bed Nightingale House is located, said how impressed he was with the home¹s facilities.
