Residents have a ball at their own Oscars party

11 February 2020

Holy Cross have their own Oscars party

Residents living at our Holy Cross Nursing Home in Sunderland have been following in the footsteps of some of the biggest Hollywood stars.

With TV screens, newspapers and magazines trumpeting news from this year's Academy Awards, staff at our nursing home were very much of the mind that ‘if you can't beat ‘em, join ‘em'.

Our home's activities' co-ordinator, Vicky, invited residents to try their hand at some Oscar-winning performances themselves and laid on a party fit for Hollywood's finest.

Soon, winners were being announced for ‘most dramatic performance', ‘best vocal performance' and ‘best footwork' and Oscar certificates were being awarded to our talented residents.

Champagne celebrations followed, and even the chocolate covered strawberries were dressed for the occasion, decorated like ball gowns and tuxedos.

The glittering occasion was rounded off with songs from some of the great films of yesteryear.

“What a fantastic time we all had,” said Vicky. “There's no better feeling than seeing our residents with a smile on their faces and announcing to everyone that they've had a wonderful afternoon.”
