On Saturday 12th November, 300 of the very best in social care attended a glittering awards ceremony at The Marriott City Centre Hotel, Bristol, for the finals of the Great South West Care Awards, where the category winners were announced.
The awards are part of the Great British Care Awards, a series of 9 regional awards celebrating excellence across the care sector. The purpose of the awards is to promote best practice within both home care and care homes sectors, and pay tribute to the individuals like Luke, who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work.
Luke Bond, Area Manager for St Ives and Penzance, has worked for Cornwall Care since 2013 and has become a well-loved member of the charity.
Not only does Luke provide exceptional care to his clients in the community, working out of his way (and hours) to help those in need, Luke also regularly promotes Cornwall Care, referring new staff to the services and sharing posts on social media.
We are so proud to have Luke as part of the team at Cornwall Care – he is a kind, hard-working young man who lifts the spirits of people wherever he goes – he definitely deserves to be recognised and awarded for his accomplishments and efforts.
Winner of the Home Care Co-ordinator award, Luke was up against around 500 other nominees, a fantastic achievement.
Luke, humble as always, also said that he felt “none of this would have been possible without the commitment and support of my amazing community team in St Ives and Penzance, as well as the support of the team at the office, and my boss Samantha Collins and planner Suzanne Roach.”
Luke is looking forward to taking the next step to Birmingham, where the regional award winners will be shortlisted into the national awards.
We wish him all the very best!
