Residents and team members of several HC-One care homes are hosting their own Harvest Festival in support of Silver Sunday to help combat loneliness within the community and help to increase happiness and well-being.
Shaw Side care home will welcome members of the local community as part of the Harvest Festival celebrations on Friday, October 5.
Celebrating Silver Sunday will provide 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.
Activities include a church service, bread making with local primary school, a raffle and an afternoon tea dance.
Joan Walton, Home Manager said,“We cannot wait to welcome everyone into our home to take part in what will be a fantastic day. Supporting Silver Sunday is a very important cause and we are thrilled to show our support. ”
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.
