The Mayor of Burnley has congratulated two members of the Bank Hall Care Home team and awarded them a “Mayor’s Medal” at an exclusive lunch event hosted by the Mayor and Mayoress of Burnley.
The Mayor’s Medal Award is the recognition and acknowledgement of individuals who have gone above and beyond to help others. Throughout the Covid 19 pandemic, the award is especially significant and acknowledges the unsung heroes in the community who have been generous with their time, energy and support.
Nigel Beeston, the housekeeper at Bank Hall, and David Humphrey, responsible for maintenance at the home, were both nominated for the award by the manager of the home Sandra Carr. Sandra said she is “so proud of both of them. Our carers have had lots of praise over the last few months but our ancillary team have done such incredible work too. Both gentlemen accepted the medals but dedicated them to all the staff at Bank Hall which is a lovely gesture.”
In a letter to Nigel and David, Councillor Mark Townsend, The Worshipful Mayor of Burnley, thanked both men for their contribution to care. He said “I am glad to have this opportunity to acknowledge your selfless work. I am sure that everyone who works with you and who knows you personally must be extremely proud and thankful for everything you do and everything you have done throughout this difficult time. Thank you so much for helping.”
Rochcare is extremely proud that the continuous hard work of Nigel and David has been awarded in this way and is appreciated by the local community.
