Marchglen Care Centre chef Lorraine scoops top award

Marchglen Care Centre chef Lorraine Bennett has won the Care Chef of the Year title at the Caring Homes Group Recognition Awards.

With more than 5,500 employees across the group Lorraine beat off stiff competition to be recognised as the group’s chef of the year.

The awards were presented at a glittering ceremony hosted at the Grove Hotel in Watford and presented by musician and singer Ronan Keating.

Marchglen Care Centre in Clackmannanshire provides nursing care for up to 36 residents in four small homes within the grounds. Each home provides different types of care and support including physical disabilities, learning disabilities and challenging behaviours in both young adults and elderly. Located in Fishcross and enjoying wonderful views over the Ochil Hills, Marchglen is renowned for providing care of the very highest standard in a state of the art facility.

Following a review of over 3,000 nominations received from colleagues and people supported for the awards, Lorraine was shortlisted to be given the top chef award.

The judges shared the views of one nomination which stated; “Lorraine goes about her work quietly and enthusiastically. She visits the residents and gets to know their individual tastes and preferences.”

Attended by over 340 guests the evening was a great occasion, with colleagues and business partners coming together to celebrate the very best care and support provided by outstanding people.

Paul Jeffery, CEO, Caring Homes Group stated; “The Recognition Awards 2017, provided an opportunity to showcase talent, dedication and commitment, as well as demonstrate the crucial role our professionals play in caring for some of the most vulnerable people in our society.

“It’s very important that we celebrate success, from the finalists nominated, to the thousands of our colleagues making a significant contribution to caring for and supporting people all over the UK.”

The event was generously sponsored by Caring Homes Group’s business partners, who together made the event possible.
