At the end of last month, Recreation and Well-Being Manager Viv Stead launched a competition for staff across Nellsar’s 13 Care Homes to ‘tart up their trolleys’!
During this period of lockdown, she thought staff could have a bit of fun and see who could use their creativity to ‘Tart up their trolley’! If teams didn’t have an activities trolley, they could improvise with whatever they had; there were no rules to the competition, the aim was simply to spread a little cheer to our residents and make them smile.
Entries were submitted to Viv and she was amazed with what came in from our Homes;
“What can I say?! Once again you and your teams have absolutely blown us all away with your creativity, passion, enthusiasm and courage! I thought it would create a bit of fun in these difficult times and you have really done it with style!”
Having looked through all the entries, Viv decided that to choose a ‘top three’ out of all of the marvellous entries was just too difficult to bear, so a decision was made to award everybody a prize in each of the categories below. She commented;
“When you see the pictures of each other’s creations I hope you will agree that they all deserve a prize in their own unique and individual way. We have loved seeing the pictures as they came in and love that our residents have been part of the creations too.”
Each Home that entered will be receiving £50 for their Residents Fund, some bubbles and a certificate over the next few weeks. A huge ‘well done’ to all the staff and residents who took part in the competition – it certainly has lifted all our spirits!
