The individual winner of the Washco Love Laundry awards is Annmarie Bradshaw from Excelcare’s Etheldred House.
Bradshaw works full time in the home laundry and was nominated by general manager Santall Horn, who said; “Annmarie truly exceeds all expectations.”
She receives a domestic Miele washing machine for her own home, fully installed courtesy of Washco’s in-house team.
Winning the Team award is the Cote Street Laundry Team from St Monica Trust, who won a Sonos speaker system for their laundry area.
In the team are: Jane Brailsford, Zoe Cook, Fransisco Lopes, Ali Sayed, Jackie Cockwell, Chris Elkins, Vanda Andrade, Katie Skuse, Lisa Stone, Aimee Godfrey and Matthew Cooper.
Often washing around five tons of laundry a week, across their four care homes around Bristol, the team are “hardworking, always smiling, and will go that extra mile for anyone”, according to Darren Way, estates services manager at St Monica Trust, who nominated the team.
The Washco Love Laundry Awards were promoted in partnership with Care Home Management and announced at the Care Show.
