Nick's Love Song Goes Global

NICK Farmer is looking for love.

And he’s found a unique way to advertise himself.


The talented cerebral palsy sufferer has written a song which he has performed and posted on YouTube.


The track, called Make My Heart Your Home, is attracting rave reviews with listeners describing it as ‘beautiful’, ‘fab’ and ‘amazing’.


Nick, who lives in supported accommodation at Shaftesbury Court in Bournemouth, is now hoping the video will lead to him meeting the girl of his dreams.


“Everyone hopes to find true love”, said the 31-year-old, “and people go about it in different ways. I love music and singing and so I thought writing and recording a song would be good.


“I find I can express myself well through song lyrics and Make My Heart Your Home is a perfect example.


“It’s a very personal song and means a great deal to me. It tells of my search for true love and I really hope that it will help me meet that very special person who can make my life complete.”


East Boro, which specialises in housing and support services for vulnerable adults across Dorset, provides services to tenants at Shaftesbury Court.


And staff at the scheme reckon Nick is a very eligible bachelor.


East Boro’s, Angela Channing, said: “Nick comes from a very supportive and talented family and it’s no surprise to see him write and sing such a beautiful song.


“He has lived with us here at Shaftesbury Court for almost 10 years now and his progress and development in all aspects of his life have been remarkable.


“Nick is a lovely, kind and creative young man who has a fabulous personality and the warmth of his character flows through his words.


“Everyone at East Boro and Shaftesbury Court is very proud of him and we’re all walking around humming and whistling his song.”


The song can be viewed at http://youtu.be/ydK8-D6kuN0 and Nick is hoping his efforts will bring more than love into his life.


He added: “It’s nice that people like my song and if anyone wants to make a donation I am raising money for the Treloar Trust in Alton which provides education, care, therapy, medical support and independence training to young people with physical disabilities.

“You can donate on their website www.treloar.org.uk and I know they would be very grateful for any support.”
