Hallmark Care Homes’ team members have shown off their talents in two regional competitions.
The events, hosted by Greenhill Manor Care Home in Merthyr Tydfil and Maycroft Manor Care Home in Brighton, provided entertainment for residents, relatives and team members, and were judged by Managing Director Ram Goyal, Regional Director Michael Burke, Regional Manager Aneurin Brown, Operations Director Cheryl Wanklyn and resident judges, Idris Browning and Mary Honour, both 88.
Mark Arrowsmith from Regency House Care Home in Cardiff was declared winner of the final in Wales after he stunned the judges with his rendition of the Elvis’ classic, ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’.
Mark said: “I have recently become part of the Hallmark team and I am very proud to be working for Regency House Care Home in Cardiff as the Lifestyle Lead.
“I am absolutely thrilled to have won Hallmark’s Got Talent. There is lots of enthusiasm and talent within the Hallmark homes and it was a pleasure to be part of the competition.”
Maycroft Manor’s Hollie’s Angels (pictured) triumphed in the English final after stunning the judges with their humorous and exciting rendition of Abba classic, ‘Money, Money, Money.’
Emily Carver, who was part of the winning group said: “Taking part in Hallmark’s Got Talent has been a fantastic experience for all those involved and it was a pleasure to be a part of holding the competition at Maycroft Manor Care Home.
“It was a great opportunity to get all the team members from the region together and have some fun and perform for the wonderful residents at Maycroft Manor.
“Hollie’s Angels are looking forward to performing at the Hallmark Care Homes’ Awards in September and we are all really grateful that the judges chose our performance as the winner.”
