Enhancing the lives of older people in South Lanarkshire since 1992
Time-served joiner and double glazing expert Tom
Robertson has joined LEAP as its Avondale
With more than 40 years work behind him, Tom (59)
brings a wealth of experience to the charity.
After completing his apprenticeship with Fleming
Joiners in Bothwell, Tom worked with the former
Hamilton District Council and local double glazing
firms before deciding on a career change.
Tom said: “In my time I’ve done a lot more than
joinery, as you used to get involved in a whole lot of
jobs from brickwork to roofing.
“I’m ready now to put something back into the local
community, and this job with LEAP allows me to do
“I’m looking forward to working with the various
communities and our volunteers in Avondale to help
older people in the area stay safe and secure in their
homes for as long as they are able.”
