Mum & Daughter Win Care Honours

A mother and daughter scooped honours in a ceremony to mark the dedication of those working for Somerset Care.

Kay and Becki Bidgood both received awards in the senior staff category at a gathering of more than 120 employees at Taunton Racecourse.

Kay works as deputy manager at the Oak Trees Care Home in Bridgwater, while daughter Becki is a shift leader at Frith House, Burnham.

At the ceremony, awards were made for long service and 29 special achievement awards were handed out to staff and volunteers.

The presentations were made by Somerset Care chairman Barrie Dale, chief executive Andrew Larpent, MP Jeremy Browne, and Miriam Maddison, corporate director at Somerset County Council.

Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Larpent said that the event to mark the company’s Care Awards scheme was a chance to ‘recognise the great work which goes on throughout the Somerset Care Group every day’.
