Pride of Guernsey - Angel of the Year
Ravenscroft has supported the Pride of Guernsey Awards, organised by the Guernsey Press, since they launched in 2016 and you can find out more about the awards here. We sponsor the Angel of the Year category, which recognises nurses, doctors and health workers who dedicate their careers to looking after not only islanders' wellbeing but, in many cases, saving lives.
With coronavirus still being very much a reality for our island, the hard work by many of our health care workers was once again recognised at the awards. This year, Angel of the Year was awarded to Corbiere Ward. The ward aims to provide specialist long-term and respite care, mostly to individuals who have dementia, with complex needs and challenging behaviours.
The team was nominated by ward manager Bridgette Loveridge, who didn’t want the team’s efforts to go unrecognised.
‘I nominated them because it is what they deserve,’ she said.
‘It has been a really hard year for us all, but they have pulled together and worked so hard over the Covid-19 lockdowns.’
The award was presented by Ravenscroft's COO Robin Newbold and collected by Jayne Nicolle-Joseph and Ilze Delgado on behalf of their colleagues, who said it meant a lot to the team that people valued the care given by each of the staff.
We are proud to continue our sponsorship of Pride of Guernsey Awards in 2022.
