Largest Lantern Made Of Drinking Straws

 

September is Dementia Awareness Month and the theme this year is ‘Together we can do it’. On 6 Sep 2014, dementia residents of The Salvation Army Peacehaven Nursing Home proved that with some assistance they could do something ‘big’. After spending a few hours with students of ITE College Central, using hula hoops for the main frame, they transformed 12,800 drinking straws into a lantern which measured 5m tall and 1.9m wide. It was displayed to celebrate the home’s Mid-Autumn Festival celebration.
