Janet Southorn from Bricklehampton Hall Nursing Home and Sarah Williamson from Canwick House were revealed as joint winners of Washco’s Love Laundry Hero award.

Their prize of £250 each to spend on electrical goods for themselves was presented at the recent Care Show.

Janet was nominated by her manager, Shirley Grinnall, who said: “Janet is very committed and she has adjusted her hours to work late if there has been a problem, walked to work in the snow and brought in her wellies when there has been a leak!”

Sarah was nominated by Catherine Paul, manager at Canwick House, who praised her for transforming staff understanding of infection, prevention and control. Sarah created resources in different languages and various mediums, to gain interest, discussions and momentum.”

New for this year was the Love Laundry Engineer’s Choice award, which was awarded to Priscilla Wakefield House, who got £500 to spend on electrical goods for their care home. Washco Senior Service Technician Chris Gaynor applauded the home for always keeping the machine lint filters clean, always smiling and for the warm welcome they give engineers.”
