Managing Director’s Award for Lesley at Acer Court

Our very talented Chef, Lesley Parker, was totally surprised on February 20th when Managing Director, John Strowbridge, arrived at Acer Court Care Home to hand her the Avery MD Award!

Lesley won this award for excellence in her role. In the last year, Lesley has gone above and beyond in her own job and in supporting others. She took it upon herself to help out at other Avery homes that encountered staffing problems and illnesses, despite not being a Support Chef. Lesley worked with Derby Heights Care Home and Alder House Care Home when they faced unexpected staff shortages, whilst also arranging to cover her own role and working on her days off. She worked tirelessly and remained professional throughout every situation.

Lesley embraced every visit with enthusiasm and a smile and she really embodies going the extra mile! Well done Lesley and thank you!

In January, the MD Award was won by Julie at Darwin Court for going the extra mile. We know how important it is to reward our dedicated staff at Avery and we’re always happy to receive nominations for our staff.
