Lewis-Manning Hospice Care’s Day Hospice patients entered a competition to design a scarecrow and were delighted to scoop 1st prize! Run by Bourne View Care Home in Poole, residents of the home were asked to be the judges and chose Lewis-Manning’s ‘Lord Lewis’ as the competition winners.
Hospice Art Co-Ordinator Karen said, “We have the most wonderful and creative patients in Day Hospice and their creation, using mostly recyclable materials brought Lord Lewis to life. It was a really fun activity to carry out together and his hat is made up of a collection of all the handprints of the patients and his eyes, nose and mouth are made from sunflower seeds, to be in keeping with Lewis-Manning’s logo. The scarecrow had quite a distinguished aura about him, so we all decided to name him Lord Lewis!
We were presented with a trophy by Bourne View, which is engraved and we get to keep it for a year.”
