29 Nov Sun Healthcare’s Got Talent 2018
It’s back – our popular talent contest for Sun Healthcare clients took place on the 15th November 2018! The event is a celebration of the talents of our clients across our five residential homes and our Community Support services. It was a fabulous night of socialising and entertainment filled with fun, joy, smiles and laughter.
Here’s a video to give you a little taste of the evening:
Everyone’s a winner
All participants in the contest were presented with a medal for their performance and all the hard work they put into preparing for it. We also had trophies for our winners:
- 1st place – Havenfield Choir – singing Any Dream Will Do
- 2nd place – Sam from Jubilee Court – singing and dancing to a Justin Bieber track
- 3rd place – Jamie and Callum from Community Support Services – singing a duet to Snow Patrol’s Chasing Cars
- Well Done Awards – Helen from Shaftsbury for singing and dancing to ABBA; Michael from Community Support Services playing the Bugle; and Clem from Jubilee Court singing and dancing to Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
Congratulations also to Terence and Pat from Havenfield with their duet and to Warren from Havenfield for his performance of Bachelor Boy.
Service User Meeting – Mamma Mia!
We were delighted to see people from the Service User Meeting (a group of client representatives from across our six services) perform a spectacular ABBA number to kick off the evening. Complete with full 70s costumes, the Service User Meeting certainly showed us that what they do isn’t just about sitting around a table talking – they have fun and socialise too!
