Care UK sponsors The Big ‘Green’ Draw Festival 2020.

Leading care home provider Care UK is the official health and social care sponsor of The Big Draw Festival 2020.

For the second year running, Care UK is hosting Big Draw Festival events in over 50 of its care homes this month.

Following the success of last year’s event, where Care UK’s homes teamed up with school, nurseries and young people, the care home provider is exploring more digital approach to this year’s event, which is themed, The Big Green Draw: A Climate of Change.

Care UK homes have already come up with some exciting creative ideas, for example: Bowes House in Hailsham is preparing to take residents on a virtual safari with the help of Knockhatch Adventure Park; colleagues and residents at Larkland House in Ascot are creating an autumn scene after discussing their relationship with nature to inspire their artwork; and at Harrier Lodge in Whitstable, they are producing their interpretation of Kandinsky’s Concentric Circles.

Care UK’s dementia expert Suzanne Mumford said: “We are very proud to be the official health and social care sponsor for The Big Green Draw Festival 2020.

“The recent pandemic has shown very powerfully how important and rewarding creative activities can be to care home residents, particularly when some of the more usual trips out and visitors have not been accessible.

“The Big Draw initiative really resonates with our activity-based approach to care. As we did last year we plan to involve young people participating alongside residents in our homes. Although visits in person are not going to be possible so that we can keep everyone safe, we’ve got some cunning plans up our sleeves to use things like Zoom and Facebook to link with schools and other groups.

“After last year’s life drawing class (pictured), I can’t wait to see what our teams and residents come up with for their Big Green Draw  Festival celebrations this year. “
