Sense Residential Care are the first winners of the inaugural Washco Love Laundry award for a care home group.

Presented at the Care Show, the new Love Laundry award saw the Sense group win £500 of electrical goods for one of their care homes, or for a specific individual. They were nominated by Sense Property Administration Manager Beverley Andrews for their commitment to best-in-class laundry processes.

Two other Love Laundry awards were also presented at the Care Show. From a record number of entries the winners were as follows:

Laundry Hero award (individual): Waratthaya Watters, from The Dower House Nursing Home in Winchester. Waratthaya was recognised for her dedication to residents and their garments, delivering a fast, high-quality service, even when they experienced staff shortages. She wins £250 to spend on electrical goods.

Laundry Care Home Team: Gower Gardens, part of Kingsley Care. Hospitality Manager Holly Payne nominated the Gower Gardens team for their morale, and outstanding teamwork in their laundry. The team wins £500 to spend on electrical goods of their choice.

Washco Head of Marketing & Projects Emily Stoten said: “We’d like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to all of our very deserving 2023 Love Laundry Award winners. The dedication and commitment shown by each of our winners will leave a lasting impression on us. We can’t wait to launch the awards again in 2024!”
