Careres have paid tribute to a former employee with the first awards cermony in her name.

The Gill Chase Awards 2015 presentation was held at the Prince of Wales Stand Fakenham Racecourse, in memory of the carer who passed away suddenly last November from a pulmonary embolism.

Gill had worked for Extra Hands as a Home Care Assistant for 20 years, and was one of the first employees. She was an “exceptional carer”, always putting her others before herself.

The group said: “As an organisation we felt the commitment and loyalty shown could not go unrecognised, so decided to keep her memory alive by organising an annual award. Members of Gill’s family were invited to take part in the judging and attended the event.”

There were congratulations to all who received nominations and the shortlisted staff (pictured). The two finalists were Nina Stephen and Ian Meredith, with Nina pronouced overall winner.
