At Hailsham House, we believe in creating moments of warmth, companionship, and joy for our residents, their families and friends. Our recent ‘Harvest Festival’ celebration, organised by the dedicated Wellbeing team, was a heartwarming event that brought everyone together as we welcomed the arrival of autumn. read on as we delve into the history of the Harvest Festival and how our unique event encapsulated the spirit of the season.
The Harvest Festival Tradition:
The Harvest Festival has a rich history dating back centuries. Originally, it was a time for communities to give thanks for the bountiful harvests that sustained them throughout the year. While our modern interpretation differs from the original concept, the essence remains the same. At Hailsham House, we celebrated not just the abundance of crops, but also the abundance of love and togetherness that defines our community.
We are truly delighted to share the heartwarming words of one of our cherished residents at Hailsham House:
“The Harvest Festival was lovely and entertaining. All of the team worked very hard to make the day special. I enjoyed the music, dancing, and food. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the day. The hard work that was put in by the staff to make the day enjoyable really paid off.”
Donations for a Worthy Cause:
This year, our Harvest Festival held a special significance as we collected donations for the Hailsham Foodbank. This remarkable organisation relies on the generosity of individuals and communities, especially during the autumn season, to support those in need. Leading up to the event, we had been collecting donations and thanks to the kind generosity of our friends and neighbours, we managed to collect a bumper haul of items for the foodbank to distribute.
A New Beginning:
We are pleased to announce that Hailsham House will now become a regular collection point for the Hailsham Foodbank, ensuring that we continue to support this vital cause throughout the year. Visitors and well-wishers can easily make their contributions at the collection point near the main reception, making a positive impact on the lives of those in need.
