A DEDICATED Wirksworth team has picked up a prestigious Great British Care Award.
At the regional event, which celebrates excellence in the care sector, the Waltham House team was presented with the Housing with Care Award.
Staff from the care home, in St John’s Road, attended a glitzy ceremony in the East Midlands Conference Centre, where the awards were presented by celebrity guest Vanessa Feltz.
Care manager Chris Betts said: “It was a fantastic night and the reward for the team for the work they have done over the last year.
“I think the award is for the outstanding service Waltham House provides – not just for the people who live here but to the community as a whole.”
Judges said they were impressed by the home’s passionate leadership and the detailed care planning. The team will now compete in the national final.
