THE efforts of kind-hearted staff at a Bromsgrove care home were celebrated at special awards bash.

The team at Housman Court Care Home in Housman Park held a celebration evening on June 19 to mark the end of national Carer's Week and to recognise the efforts of staff during the coronavirus pandemic.

Staff, residents and relatives sent in their nominations and relatives, who are unable to visit due to COVID-19 restrictions, sent in their message of support to the team.

Lisa Dews, manager of the home, said: "We felt it was important to praise staff for all their efforts and thank them for all their hard work with going the extra mile with recent challenges we are all facing.

"They have continued to provide the best care for all our residents and ensured care and activities have not been compromised."

Winners included staff members Molly Bissett, Paul Hodges, Shannon O'Donnell and Vicki Fothergill.
