Kingswood Lodge Care Home in Wotton-under-Edge held a special party to celebrate the success of resident Anne Gibbs at this year's Four Seasons Care Awards.
Anne had been shortlisted as a National Finalist in the category of Resident or Relative Contribution, but as her health did not permit the journey to Birmingham for the awards ceremony, her sister Mary Head stepped in and attended on Anne's behalf alongside Home Manager Jana Vaskova.
Jana had promised a big party for Anne in Kingswood Lodge Care Centre after the ceremony regardless of the result, and although on this occasion Anne was not the overall winner, everyone was delighted to celebrate everything she has achieved.
Anne's siblings and other family members joined Anne for the party and her fellow residents gave her lovely flowers and cards, saying how very proud they were of her.
Other volunteers at Kingswood also attended the party and expressed their joy at Anne's well-deserved recognition.
Everyone was pleased to have the opportunity to show their gratitude for the many contributions Anne and Mary make to life at Kingswood Lodge, including helping with entertainment and resident activities, arranging home events, monthly raffles to raise money for the Residents' Fund, teaching and supporting residents with arts, crafts, knitting and crochet and obtaining various items for stalls for special events.
This is not the end of it as Anne also provides encouragement to other residents to get involved and attend activities and events and always gives very useful feedback on what they would like to see in the future.
Once again we all are so proud of your achievement, Anne. Congratulations from the Kingswood Lodge family and everyone at Four Seasons Health Care.
