Dudley care home hosts harvest festival celebrationsResidents of HC-One’s Ashgrove care home in Dudley hosted a Harvest Festival event in support of Silver Sunday to help combat loneliness within the community and help to increase happiness and wellbeing. 

Celebrating Silver Sunday provided an opportunity for elderly people living independently in the local community to meet new people, make new friends and have meaningful moments in the company of others. 

Ashgrove welcomed members of the local community as part of the Harvest Festival celebrations on Friday, October 5. The home hosted a range of exciting activities including choir practice, a raffle and church service.

Food was generously donated by local Aldi and Tesco stores and the home was decorated with flower arrangements and displays made by Residents.

Harvest Festival is an annual celebration to mark the end of the main harvest season and a time to give thanks for the crop that has been grown. Traditionally it is a time when people share collected food items with those in need in their local community.

Silver Sunday is an annual day of fun and free activities for older people across the UK. Led by The Sir Simon Milton Foundation, it celebrates the value and knowledge they contribute to our communities while combating loneliness and isolation.
