2012 National Care Awards

Last Friday saw the 14th National Care Awards take place at the London Hilton Metropole hotel. The National Care Awards has been the social care sector’s premier awards event since 1999, promoting excellence in the care industry.

Head chef Chris was one of the finalists for Care Chef of the Year (you may remember Chris spent a day up in Milton Keynes back in October cooking a delicious menu for the judges) and he was joined by myself, office manager Alan and our partners for the Gala Awards Night. It was a great evening and wonderful opportunity for the care industry to show its appreciation for the tireless work that goes on each and every day in the care world. Although Chris did not win the award it was a great achievement becoming one of just five finalists and all of us at Valerie Manor are extremely proud of him.

This Friday we’re at the Great British Care Awards for the Regional Finals in Brighton where Alan and our care trainer Michelle are finalists – we’ll report back with news from the event next week!
