Norley's Got Talent!

2 minute read

Residents and staff at Norley Hall were treated to the very first Norley's Got Talent show!

The home ran the event following a companywide competition callout for each home in the group  to bring in something special.

Acts ranged from singing, dancing, and music but there was one performance that stole the show.

Bossi, a staff member, regaled residents and colleagues in her amazing Nigerian attire with three incredible traditional performances.

Julia Entwistle, Activity Coordinator at Norley Hall, said:

“We’ve been blown away with the positive response from staff, residents and their families with our first Norley’s Got Talent Show, it must be said the main highlight of our show was our very own Bossi!

“It's marvellous that we get to share in her wonderful culture. When I was talking to Bossi prior to the event I could see how much pride she had in her Nigerian roots. The symbolism of the beading and the incredible colours of her attire engaged us all in a whole new world.

“She’s brought a lot of happiness and joy to Norley through the flavour of her culture. My thanks to all the staff, residents and families who came together and made this such a huge success.”

Bossi Okusanya, Care Assistant at Norley Hall, said:

"I'm overwhelmed, I'm so proud of myself. I've never done anything like this, but I felt at home performing in front of my residents.

"I loved seeing their faces light up, and seeing the joy I gave the residents made me so happy."

Vera, a resident at the home, said:

"I thought it was a wonderful day. Everyone was great and I'm sorry I couldn't have joined in dancing with Bossi, she was fantastic!

"Everyone's been so friendly, and it’s been a marvellous afternoon! I'd like to see this happen again, I've really enjoyed myself, everyone has!"
