HC-One’s Sutherland Court care home in Newcastle was certainly in the Harvest Festival mood after spending days with Residents decorating harvest crafts.
During this time, it is always important for Residents, Colleagues and Relatives to think of their local community, as the Harvest Festival is seen as a religious event that celebrated the winter harvest.
Colleagues at Sutherland Court asked their fellow team and Relatives to donate non-perishable food for the local food bank, so that Sutherland Court can give back to their local community, as a thank you from all Residents and Colleagues at the home for their kind support over the past few difficult months.
The Harvest Festival was filled with singing Hymns, thanking everyone for the food, quizzes, poems and watching You Tube clips of harvest related fun.
Sutherland Court Resident, Emily Gray said: “We sang, we laughed and we drank and eat cake, what more did we need.”
There was something for everyone, with Residents enjoying songs, films and a lovely selection of food that helped Harvest Festival celebrations go on into the night.
Sutherland Court Home Manager, Karen Stewar said: “It was absolutely fantastic seeing Residents and Colleagues enjoying themselves, and giving back to our community at the same time.”
