They will always be our local heroes

Home news

Two members of our team recently enjoyed the red carpet treatment as they made it through to the finals of a north east radio station’s Local Hero awards.

Our Manager Evelyn Tierney and our Activities Coordinator Doreen Bogourt were nominated for the Working with Older People award in Star Radio’s Local Heroes Awards and they both got through to the toughly contested finals.

They both attended the gala dinner held by the Darlington based radio station at the at the Xcel Centre in Newton Aycliffe on Thursday 11th July and had a great time.

Our Administrator Lauren Swinburn said: “They both deserved to be in the finals and they are winners to us. Both of them are incredible dedicated to making our residents lives as fulfilling and happy as possible.

“They have helped to transform the look and feel of the home by creating beautiful dementia friendly environments that somehow manage to calm residents and stimulate their memories and senses at the same time.

“The pair of them are inspiring and we are all very proud of them.”
