More than 800 nominations have been put forward for our inaugural Colten Champions awards, designed to celebrate the amazing work our team does and those people who consistently go the extra mile.
Residents, relatives and staff across all our homes have put forward the names of individuals they feel deserve an award and told us why.
The home with the most nominations, 66, was Belmore Lodge in Lymington, with The Aldbury in Poole on 49.
The call for entries took place in January 2018 with nominations invited online or written on cards in each of our homes’ foyers.
It has been followed by a shortlisting process to agree three finalists in each of the 12 categories.
Winners will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony we’re holding at the Bournemouth Marriott Hotel in April, hosted by broadcaster and doctor Hilary Jones.
“What a fantastic response we’ve had,” said Elaine Farrer, Operations Director. “So many people have got behind this. Excitement is already building for awards night and the chance to go out and celebrate the work of team members across all aspects of our care services.”
