What a result for Affinity
Earlier this year Affinity staff members Chris Nolan and Stephen Penketh won major titles at the regional finals of the Great British Care Awards.
At the glittering ceremony held at the ballroom at Blackpool Tower, Chris won the Home Care Worker of the Year award and Stephen the Home Care Registered Manager award.
As a result we were invited to the national finals, held at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane in London where hundreds of winners came together to find out who had been chosen as the overall national prize-winner (pictured).
Although Chris and Stephen did not come away as the overall winners the evening was a huge success and being in the top of our two categories was an achievement in itself. We went head-to-head with some of the largest care providers in the UK.
The evening was hosted by Fiona Philips of GMTV, who has also been involved in a television documentary about dementia and is a passionate advocate of good care.
It has been an extremely successful year in Affinity Supporting People’s history –Stephen Penketh and Vici Beardsworth also won the 14th National Care Awards Special Needs Manager. Long may it continue!
