Donna – shortlisted for the Great British Care Awards 2020

27th Oct 2020

We are absolutely thrilled that one of Bridgewater Day Care’s Support Workers, Donna Edwards will be a finalist at the Great British Care Awards 2020, in the North West region.


Donna has been shortlisted for the Dignity in Care Award. Last year, Gill Sinar at the Day Care Centre won the same award ! 

Donna, lives locally in Golborne and has worked at Bridgewater Day Care since the beginning of July 2017. Donna values dignity in the person-centred care she provides to her clients and on receiving news of her nomination told us :

“Being nominated for the Dignity in Care Award means the world to me, just for doing something that I love . I have the best Manager and a great team alongside me and I am proud to be recognised for what I love doing. I started at Bridgewater in 2017, having never worked in care but it turned out to be my dream job and I have never looked back. Taking care of and making sure our “family” at work is my main priority, to see them smile, happy and safe throughout the day is worth everything to me. Coming to work is like coming home, making a difference to our clients’ day has got to be the best feeling that I’ve had in my job.”

Donna’s Manager , Lisa Lehan told us how incredibly proud she was of Donna when she heard the news that she would be a Finalist for such a prestigious care award and added that :

“The Bridgewater Day Care team all work so incredibly hard and show outstanding passion and commitment to making a difference and going above and beyond in their care for our clients at the Day Care Centre.”

The Great British Care Awards are a series of regional events throughout the UK and are a celebration  of excellence across the care sector.  The purpose of the awards is to pay tribute to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work.

The awards are made up of twenty-one categories representing all areas of the social care sector, whether it be older people or specialist services, residential or home care. From frontline staff such as care workers and care managers to people who have made an impact in other ways such as training and innovation. The awards are all inclusive, bringing together the statutory, independent and voluntary sectors, as well as unpaid carers; promoting joint working. Working in partnership with care partners and local care associations is at the heart of the initiative; working and linking directly with local managers and networks to further promote the event.

The judging day will take place virtually this year in November due to the current pandemic.

Good luck to Donna and all finalists. Whatever happens Donna will always be a winner to us!

We will find out if Donna has won at a gala awards evening at The Midland Hotel, Manchester on Saturday, 24th April 2021.
