The Depperhaugh Nursing Home near Eye toasts awards success

Depp awards

The Depperhaugh Nursing Home in Hoxne, near Eye is celebrating four successes in the Kingsley Healthcare 25th Anniversary Regional Care Awards.

In an event hosted at the Ivy House Country Hotel, in Oulton Broad, Lowestoft by ITV Anglia news anchors David Whiteley and Becky Jago, Christine Dinnage was honoured as Registered Nurse of the Year for Kingsley’s Suffolk homes while Sandra Moss was announced as Support Worker of the Year.

Meanwhile, Home Manager Debbie Reeve was a runner-up in the Care Home Manager of the Year category and Head Chef Patricia Stephen made the final shortlist for Chef of the Year.

Mrs Dinnage, who earlier this year celebrated 35 years working at The Depperhaugh, was described by one colleague who nominated her as “a good dependable nurse and the most dedicated, honest and hard-working person I have had the pleasure to work with, always showing the same work ethic and compassion towards residents”.

Senor Support Worker Mrs Moss, who has worked at The Depperhaugh for more than 20 years, was described in her nomination as “the epitome of a first-class carer loved by residents and staff alike. As a senior on days, she ensures shifts run smoothly, supports her colleagues and always wears a smile”.

Mrs Stephen, a celebrated cake maker who has several times reached the final of Kingsley’s Christmas Cake Competition, retires in a few weeks after working at The Depperhaugh for more than 15 years.

Mrs Reeve, who has been manager at The Depperhaugh for over two years,  said: “I am  very proud of my team and Christine and Sandra are worthy winners. We are lucky to have so many long-serving, dedicated members of staff. Patricia is a top-class chef and her cakes are truly amazing! ”
