Grimsby care home host harvest festival celebrations
Residents of a HC-One care home 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.
Brooklands welcomed members of the local community as part of the Harvest Festival celebrations on Friday, October 5. The home hostyed a special Harvest Festival service for all the Residents, local charity CARE visited and were given harvest donations.
The home's own choir, the Brookland Bells then sang some Harvest themed songs.
Mel Walton, home manager at HC-One’s Newlands commented:

“It was a lovely occasion, and nice to see so many Relatives joining in."
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.
Brooklands encourage everyone to feel part of things both within the home and the wider community. Harvest Festival and Silver Sunday are examples of activities that suits Resident’s hobbies and interests.
