A enormous pumpkin that weighed as much as a horse or four baby elephants was donated to 1,000 homeless people for them to eat.

A couple, Ray and Sarah Armstrong, had a winter squash in their home garden at South Clifton, Nottingham. They had been growing the vegetable for the national giant pumpkin competition.

The Armstrongs took home the second prize at the competition and they decided to donate the massive pumpkin to 1,000 homeless people to feed them.


“We heard other giant pumpkin growers donate theirs to the local zoo, where elephants smash them up and eat them," Ray, a 50-year old textile business owner, said.

Ray thought of the most generous thing to do with their pumpkin despite the hardships of keeping the vegetable alive.

“We just thought if it could feed an elephant how many people could it feed? We’re quite big veg growers and we reckon it should feed over 700," he added.


“We’ve spent the last six months desperately trying to keep it alive so I think it’s going to be a bit of a sad moment when we cut into it," Ray admitted.

However, Ray's compassion for the poor still won and did the final decision to donate it.

“But it’s better than it just rotting away. One problem is we’re not too sure how on earth we’re going to cut the thing. I’m just going to take a knife to it and get the lid off and then we’ll try and scoop it out somehow,” he said.
