Virtual Halloween still oozes with fun

30 October 2020

Pumpkins and Halloween decorations

Guys and ghouls are out in force around our services as everyone finalises their preparations for this year's very different take on Halloween.

Although the current restrictions mean our service users are unable to mingle to mark the spookiest event in the calendar, it certainly hasn't cramped their style.

Many of the outfits and decorations are being saved as a surprise to share via video links, but we can reveal some of the creepy creations that are about to take centre stage.

As you can see, pumpkins are being revealed in all their ‘gory', but there have been some 'spectre-tacular' artistic displays created, too.

Add some online quizzes and a dastardly ‘whodunit', blend with virtual parties and spooky cookery and you get a witches' brew of fearsome fun for everyone - from our Fostering North East Youngstars to residents in our nursing homes.

Our Director of Care, Amanda Head said,

“It's a treat to see so many smiles in the photos our staff and service users have been taking of their Halloween preparations. I'm so proud of everyone for their positivity and the creative ways they've found to keep having fun in these difficult times.”
