Lulworth House Care Home wins third place in Nellsarvision Song Contest

Eurovision becomes ‘Nellsarvision’

In April, Nellsar Care Homes launched its very own ‘Nellsarvision Song Contest’ in the run up to the Eurovision Song Contest which took place at the weekend in Sweden.

Teams, residents, and family members across Nellsar’s 13 Homes were invited to stretch their vocal cords, whip out their musical instruments and get singing – to enter a song of their choice to be judged by Nellsar’s Recreation and Well-Being Manager Viv Stead along with popular singer Kevin Walsh, who is a regular performer in many Nellsar Homes, including Lulworth House.

Nine Homes entered a total of 15 video entries and Viv and Kevin had the daunting task of choosing first, second and third place.

A winning performance…

The song we chose for our video entry was the 1982 Madness hit ‘Our House’. We rewrote the lyrics so we could showcase our Home, team members and amazing residents – and what fun we had making it, with everyone getting behind the fun, dancing and dressing up.

We are thrilled to announce that our entry came third in the competition, winning us £100 for our Residents’ Fund!

Viv commented: “Funny personalised lyrics and great editing. Lovely resident engagement and a tour of the Home!”

Huge congratulations to everyone involved in making our video!
