Spooky Goings On At Upton Manor As Residents Get Creative

Artistic residents at Upton Manor Care Home took inspiration from the incredible autumnal colours to create some Halloween magic for charity.

Residents have carefully handmade the boxes for their Harvest Festival collection which will be donated to Hope for Food, a local foodbank supporting people in Poole and Bournemouth.

Upton Wellbeing and Lifestyle Coach Amy Morrison said: “We are all keen to celebrate the season and obviously Halloween is a big part of that.

“So, we have had some super art sessions, making decorations that will fill the home for Halloween. The sessions have got everyone talking about their family traditions during this period.

“However, our local community is very important to us here at Upton so our harvest collection will be supporting local residents going through tough times.

“As well as our Giving back October with the food parcels we will also be making a cake donation.

“We are asking friends and family as well as staff to support the collection so we hope it will make a difference to those in need locally.”

Hope for Food provides food to the homeless as well as families in need. As well as supplying two community meals every week, volunteers provide other necessities for the homeless. The charity also provides food parcels to families in crisis.

Amy will be handing over the food harvest collection to the charity at the end of the month.
