Bridgewater Home Care Wigan organised a spooky scarecrow competition hoping to spread some cheer during the half-term holidays in Wigan.
Shaneil Gaskell, the Registered Care Manager at the Wigan office encouraged her team and their children initially to get creative and make a Halloween-themed scarecrow to be displayed at the front of the Wigan head office. However, she opened the competition out to followers on Bridgewater Home Care Wigan’s Facebook page asking people to bring in their scariest, spookiest and monstrous scarecrows and promised them the first prize of a £20 Smyths toy shop voucher.
Shaneil told us ” I really hoped it would bring some cheer, Halloween fun and creativity during these challenging times.”
Three entries were received in time for the judging day on Friday 30th October and Bridgewater’s Facebook followers were asked to vote for their favourite by 3 pm the same day.
The Wigan Home Care office was bowled away by the fantastic response they received from Facebook followers who voted in their hundreds! The three Halloween scarecrows all deserved to be winners but sadly there was only one prize on offer and Scarecrow No 2 was narrowly voted the winner.
Archie, Aged 8 and the son of one of Bridgewater Home Care Wigan’s Senior home care team was delighted when he heard he was the winner! He couldn’t wait to claim his prize and thanked everyone for voting for his scarecrow.
