A Worksop care home worker has been crowned maintenance champion for the region in the Barchester Care Awards.
Ian Kettleborough, who works at Barchester’s Forest Hill home in Worksop now goes through to the national finals later this year.
The awards celebrate staff and volunteers who go the extra mile for the benefit of individuals living in Barchester care homes.
Categories range from Registered Nurse of the Year’ and Carer of the Year to Maintenance Champion and Team of the Year.
More than 1,000 nominations were received from homes across the UK.
All entries have been of a very high standard and Ian is thrilled to have been named top in the region.
As the winner for the division, Ian is automatically through to the national Barchester Care Awards finals.
He will meet a panel of judges in London for the last round of judging.
He will then join the other finalists from across the UK at a special awards lunch in October to celebrate their achievements and discover if they have won a national award.
Lizzie Dodd, general manager at Forest Hill, said: “This is an amazing achievement and the whole home is supporting Ian.
“He always goes above and beyond the call of duty and makes resident care his number one priority.”
