On the ever so sunny evening of Thursday 2nd June 2016 we saw the Peninsula team lift our third Award.
Being shortlisted as finalist for two categories in The Business Eye Small Business Awards 2016, members of the Peninsula management and care team walked the red carpet at La Mon Hotel and Country Club to be greeted with a Champagne reception before entering the ballroom for what became a truly fantastic evening of glitz, glamour, nerves and excitement.
After a delicious meal the awards ceremony hosted by UTV’s Marc Mallet and as he worked his way through the order of ceremony the Peninsula Care table sat in anticipation.
After hearing the list of finalists we heard the Award Sponsor call out the winner to be Peninsula Care as Healthcare Business of the Year.
After lifting the trophy and a few interviews Jonny, Doreen and Rosemary made their way back to the table to await the company’s fate in the second category Peninsula Care were finalist in.
As the finalists were named we then learned that Peninsula Care was to lift the title of being “Highly Commended” in the Customer Focus Category. Jonny was joined on stage by Community Care Workers Melissa Shaw and Chloe Stevenson to receive this amazing title.
Director Jonny Cook says ” Quite often in healthcare we spend so much time thinking about those we care for and as healthcare workers we don’t always get or give ourselves praise and recognition for what we do every day. Trophies and Awards are great to look at but the overwhelming feeling of pride that comes from hearing Peninsula Care being named a winner is priceless. I have known from day one back in 2009 that my team are all winners in the work they do, however it is great to get the recognition for each and every one of them”.
Peninsula Care remain a multi award winning agency now to work for and as well as being on the lookout for a trophy cabinet for our reception we also want others to join us in the Peninsula journey.
