Congratulations to Donna Edwards from Golborne – who has been named as a finalist in the Great British North West Care Awards 2020.
Donna, who is a Support Worker at Bridgewater Day Care Centre in Golborne, is nominated in the Dignity in Care category, in recognition of the excellent person-centred care she gives clients at the centre.
She said: “Being nominated for the Dignity in Care Award means the world to me, just for doing something that I love.
“I have the best manager and a great team alongside me, and I am proud to be recognised for what I love doing.”
Donna started at Bridgewater Day Care Centre in 2017. At that time she had never worked in care before, but she soon realised she had found her “dream job”.
She said: “Taking care of and making sure our “family” at work is my main priority, to see them smile, happy and safe throughout the day is worth everything to me. Coming to work is like coming home, making a difference to our clients’ day has got to be the best feeling that I’ve had in my job.”
And it’s not the first time Bridgewater Day Care Centre has been recognised. Another member of their team, Gill Sinar, was a winner in the same category last year. Gill is now through to the finals of the National Great British Care Awards, which take place virtually on Friday 30 October.
Donna’s proud manager, Lisa Lehan, said: “The Bridgewater Day Care team all work so incredibly hard and show outstanding passion and commitment to making a difference and going above and beyond in their care for our clients at the Day Care Centre. None of my team have any expectation of accolade, but I know that it means a lot to them when their hard work is recognised.”
The Great British Care Awards are a series of regional events throughout the UK and are a celebration of excellence across the care sector. Bridgewater Day Care will find out if Donna has won at a gala awards evening due to be held at The Midland Hotel, Manchester on Saturday, 24 April 2021.
