Spire Liverpool Hospital's Halloween Pumpkin Carving Competition

November 2012

On Wednesday 31 October staff at Spire Liverpool decided to celebrate Halloween in a very creative way – by hosting a Pumpkin Carving Competition!

Staff from all over the hospital were encouraged to bring in their finest examples of Jack-O-Lanterns, with prizes for the winners.

“It started out as just a bit of fun,” one of the organisers was quoted as saying, “but everybody really got into the spirit of things! It’s things like this that really bring the staff of the hospital together and it’s a pleasure to see everybody having so much fun.”

Despite fierce competition, the winner of this prestigious event was Helen Garfield-Ford with her terrifying pumpkin entry.

We’d like to thank one of Spire Liverpool’s top orthopaedic consultants, Mr Davidson, for agreeing to act as a judge on the day. With such creative talents in the hospital, it’s a shame they couldn’t all win. Still, there’s always next year.
