It’s official – Pat Geddes is a Blooming Star!

The first Blooming Star is Pat Geddes from Thornhill who was nominated by her daughter Jackie.

“My Mum has been there for me throughout my 3 back operations. She’s done my house work, walked our dog plus looked after my daughter Amy. She was there for us all when my husband was told he had cancer (who is ok now thankfully) My Mum also nursed my dad who had cancer and heart problems but sadly my dad died this year. My mum’s is a wonderful woman and we all love her”
