Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards winners

December 14, 2018

The Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards winners were announced at a ceremony in London last week.

The 3rd Sector Care Awards celebrate excellence and innovation in voluntary, not-for-profit support services. Entries came from across the sector, including day services, community groups, care homes, hospices and home care providers, as well as teams working on technologies to improve service delivery.

Hosted once again by the enigmatic Dame Esther Rantzen, who this year was joined by her daughter, Rebecca Wilcox, the day was a truly remarkable showcasing of the talent and efforts put in by all the finalists, winners and the sector as a whole.

Dame Esther's witty interviews were paired with festive performances from the Chelsea Pensioners singing group and St Joseph's Roman Catholic Primary School, which had everyone singing and dancing along.

The judges were impressed by the high calibre of this year's finalists and congratulations go to them all.
