Pride of Jersey - Angel of the Year
The Pride of Jersey Awards, organised by the Jersey Post, were launched in 2016, and Ravenscroft has been a proud sponsor of them since the beginning. Each year, Ravenscroft sponsor the Angel of the Year category to recognise nurses, doctors and health workers who dedicate their careers to looking after not only islanders' wellbeing but, in many cases, saving lives.
This year saw a record 27,244 votes cast ahead of the ceremony, which took place on 22nd September. The three finalists were Cheyenne O’Connor, Sarah Vivian, and Sandra Teixeira.
Sarah was awarded Angel of the Year for her work as a St John Ambulance care and support worker. She is also a district nurse for Family Nursing and Home Care and a teacher of health and social care at Highlands College. As well as this, Sarah is on the committee for Jersey Cancer Relief.
Sarah was nominated by Michael Officer, who described her as an 'inspirational' person.
‘She is absolutely tireless, an inspirational and practical person who provides positivity and real assistance to those who care for relatives,' he said.
The 2023 event will take place on Thursday 21st September.
