A Bury St Edmunds care home has presented local nursing teams, who support the residents, with an award as a way of thanking them for all their hard work.

Davers Court, on Shakers Lane held the GEM Awards in honour of the Mount Farm and Victoria Community Nurses Team.

The award, which stands for “going the extra mile”, went to the team, which consists of district nurses Sandra Goodfellow and Nicky Faulkner; community nurses Claire Bridgeman, Laura Mills and Kayleigh Hatlan; and general workers Sharon Forder and Amy Beales; who received particular praise for their efforts when it snowed earlier this year.

Resident Anne Thearle, who was a nurse for many years, presented the team with the accolade.

Wendy Harvey, home manager at Davers Court, said: “It was great to be able to present the Mount Farm and Victoria Teams with the GEM Award as they have been such a wonderful support to the care home.
