A care home worker in Nantwich is in the running for a national award in her role as hospitality manager.

Debbie Mercandelli, who works at Richmond Village Nantwich, travelled to London for the Great British Care Awards.

Her team was selected as North West winners of the Hydration and Nutrition Award, and now they will represent the region in the national finals in London on May 12.

Debbie was named as one of South Cheshire’s Employees of the Year, and has also reached the semi-finals of the Barchester Care Awards.

She said: “I am very honoured to be representing the wonderful team here at Richmond Nantwich.

“Of course, I am also very nervous but we are all looking forward to the Award evening.”

Lynne Griffin, Village manager, said: “Debbie and her team work extremely hard at providing tasty nutritional food each and every day to our residents and I am delighted they have been recognised in this way.

“We all wish them lots of luck.”

The finals are being held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, with TV personality Ben Shepherd as host.
