Deerhurst at the Great British Care Awards 2019
Posted on 13 March 2019
Here we are at the Great British Care Awards 2019 national awards evening last Friday! Ray Quinn and Alison Hammond were the celebrity presenters at this dazzling event.
Both based at Deerhurst care home, Erin Taylor was shortlisted for the (National) Care Assessor/Care Planner Award and Clive Iles was shortlisted for the (National) Unpaid Carers Award. Our finalists were amongst a total of only 5 people from Bristol.
Its brilliant that Erin and Clive were finalists in these national awards, and they were winners of the SW regional heats!
Lesley Hobbs, Manager for Brunelcare's Deerhurst care home says:
"We had quite a few of us from the Deerhurst team there on the night, along with friends and family. We were all so proud to be representing Brunelcare! Winners of the Unpaid Carers Award were worthy winners as they had lost loved ones and went on to set up a dementia cafe to support other families.
We enjoyed a lovely evening - eventually getting home at 3am.. Our thanks to Nicky from Woodland Court who kindly drove us all there!"
