Scarborough care provider Saint Cecilia’s Care Group has won two prestigious awards at the Great Yorkshire and Humberside Care Awards.
Managing director Mike Padgham took the Outstanding Contribution to Care award and Laura Fielding, chef at the company’s Saint Cecilia’s Nursing Home, was named top chef/cook during the event.
Said Mike: “I was honoured and humbled to be awarded the Outstanding Contribution award. I dedicate it to all those I work with at the Independent Care Group and, previously, at the United Kingdom Homecare Association, and to all the team at Saint Cecilia’s as together we all fight for a better deal for social care.
“I am extremely pleased for Laura as she is a fantastic, creative and inspirational cook, whose talents go way beyond providing delicious and nutritious food for our residents.
“I’m also very proud of all members of the team who were shortlisted or nominated for awards on Friday, and indeed all the staff at Saint Cecilia’s – they are all winners in my eyes!”
Saint Cecilia’s was shortlisted in no fewer than 10 categories for the awards, presented at York Railway Museum on 22nd November. The company was shortlisted as Care Home Employer and other members of staff were shortlisted for individual awards.
Mike added: “We were absolutely thrilled to have been shortlisted for awards this year and it is a testament to all the hard work our staff have put in that they were recognised in this way.”
The company was also recently shortlisted for the Care Group of the Year award at the Caring UK Awards.
