A county company which sponsors the Shropshire Care Awards has praised the carers recognised for their efforts in this year’s shortlist.

Bespoke Computing Ltd, of Telford, this year sponsored the Carer of the Year – Domiciliary Care category of the awards.

Managing director Chris Pallett chose to sponsor an award after experiencing carers first hand when two of his own close family members required the assistance of care professionals for very different reasons.

Sandra Dyche, of Abbey Care, Lisa Marsh, of Coverage Care’s Care at Home and Marion Hamer, of Allcare Shropshire Ltd, are the shortlisted three in the Carer of the Year Award – Domiciliary Care.

Mr Pallett said: “The shortlisted candidates should be extremely proud of themselves as I know there were a lot of entries this year and it has been difficult to come up with the final three for each category.

“Having seen carers in action I know the job is not an easy one and I am really pleased to be able to be a part of recognising the wonderful work they do.

“Huge congratulations must go to all of those shortlisted.”

The 2012 Care Awards Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin is now in its sixth successful year and now has 14 categories.

The winners in each of the categories will be announced on Friday 12th October at The International Centre, Telford. To book a table at the event, please contact Ria Skelton on (01743) 860011 or rskelton@spic.co.uk.
