Award wins for car­ers

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

There was suc­cess for the Cross Keys Homes care ser­vice, Cross Keys Care, at the Great Bri­tish Care Awards, East­ern Re­gion, with wins in two cat­e­gories. In ad­di­tion, care busi­ness de­vel­op­ment man­ager Mary Bryce was given a surprise award - out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion to care. Mary, who has ded­i­cated over 40 years of her life to the care sec­tor, said: “It is not of­ten I am lost for words but I was com­pletely speech­less!” Claire Hig­gins, chief ex­ec­u­tive of Cross Keys Homes, said: We are very proud to have Mary as one of our val­ued em­ploy­ees. She is truly in­spi­ra­tional.” Cross Keys Care’s ex­tra care scheme, King­fisher Court, won the Hous­ing with Care award, and care worker Ge­orge Car­pen­ter won the Care New­comer Award after com­bin­ing the skills he gained car­ing for his own fam­ily mem­bers with his own un­der­stand­ing na­ture. King­fisher Court and Ge­orge will now go for­ward to the na­tional awards later in the year.
