Counting down to the Care Awards 2020!
The Hertfordshire Care Awards 2020
Friday 20th November 2020
Say thank you to your amazing care staff for their outstanding work this year, and gain a ticket to this year’s Hertfordshire Care Awards Live Broadcast.
It’s time to tell everyone about you and your team’s bravery, commitment, and compassion throughout the pandemic, and get your staff the recognition they deserve.
You deserve for people to know how hard you work, how good your business is, and how caring, compassionate and dedicated your staff are. Furthermore, you want potential new customers to know that it is your care business or home that they want to care for their loved ones. So, we want to help you stage a staff awards ceremony in your community this year.
Engaging with the Hertfordshire Care Awards is your opportunity to reward all of your staff, and potentially promote your organisation through this broadcasted event as the best bits throughout Hertfordshire will be included.
For the last 10 years, care providers, staff, and families have been nominating individuals and businesses for a prestigious Hertfordshire Care Award. This year, we are not asking for nominations but, much better than that, we want you to help us say thank you to all care staff and businesses in Hertfordshire.
We are doing this by inviting you to send photos and video footage of your own internal staff awards ceremonies where, as well as thanking your staff, it is your opportunity to remember colleagues, residents, and clients very sadly lost during the pandemic. Of course, we expect all local events to observe safety and social distancing guidelines.
Please ensure that all events have been held by mid October 2020 if you would like to be showcased in the live event later on in November!
Fundraising for Hertfordshire’s Care Heroes
We are even fundraising to help members make these events the best they can be and will provide you with a toolkit for your event and a wall-mounted care awards plaque and certificates commemorating those lost and celebrating those who worked throughout the crisis. If we raise enough money, we may also be able to supply you with rewards for your staff!
The LIVE event!
On 20th November, we will run our live broadcast: the event will include celebrity guests, music acts, and VIPs as well as the usual Care Awards favourites. We will also include the best bits of footage and photos from providers around the county. It could include yours!
In return for you hosting your own staff ceremony, as well as providing the toolkit, plaque, and certificates, you will receive your organisation’s ticket to the big event.
On the night, you and your staff can join residents, clients, colleagues, and friends, and get dressed up to enjoy our county-wide celebration!
The Hertfordshire Care Awards 2019
On the 22nd November, we hosted the annual Hertfordshire Care Awards in a glamorous ceremony at Knebworth Barns to celebrate the Best in Care!
The guests were entertained by singer Aimi P, and enthralled by Marshall Arkeley the Fire Eater. Our ceremony was opened by our very own Wesley Strahan-Hughes singing a medley of songs by the notorious band Queen accompanied by Suprise Dancers UK (SDUK) disguised as Knebworth Barns waiters and waitresses, much to the astonishment of our guests!
More entertainment came from Koostyx performing various hits from the sixties all the way through to modern-day whilst we enjoyed our delicious three-course meal. We then danced the night away to the sound of The Motown Mondays.
