Pumpkin Growing

This year, one of our CAREGivers has grown a pumpkin in remembrance of a beloved client, Mr D, who sadly passed away last year.

Mr. D’s wife kindly sent us some seeds from Mr D’s last pumpkin which she has helped him grow.

The pumpkin, weighing at 7.4kg was passed over to Mr D’s family and they were ecstatic with the results.

The pumpkin was entered into the local Pumpkin Show in September and it sold for a healthy £50! - the money raised has been donated to their village fund. Mr D’s wife has kept some seeds from the pumpkin to grow again next year.

We are extremely proud of our CAREGiver’s first attempt at growing pumpkins and  will continue to see Mr D’s pumpkin-growing traditions live on.
