The annual awards recognise and celebrate individuals, organisations, and companies who have demonstrated excellence within the care sector in the county.

The announcement of the winners in each of the 10 awards categories was postponed from March due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but for Nina it was worth the wait. She said: “I’m thrilled to receive this award. I can’t believe it and I’m so happy.”

Larkrise home manager, Lyndsay Sard, said: “I am very honoured to have such a dedicated and compassionate employee as part of my outstanding team at Larkrise.

"Nina should be so proud of herself and all that she has achieved.”
