A Spilsby care home manager has been honoured for her leadership in a county awards programme.

Donella Savage, from Eresby Hall, was named joint Leader of the Year at this year’s Orders of St John Care Trust’s (OSJCT) Lincolnshire Employee Awards.

The event is held annually by the OSJCT – one of the UK’s largest not-for-profit care home providers – to celebrate its stand-out care workers throughout the county.

This year’s event was held recently at the The Petwood Hotel, in Woodhall Spa, with HM Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire Andrew Clark carrying out the presentations.

A spokesman for the OSJCT said: “Donella Savage was awarded for sharing her knowledge and experience with others inside and outside the home, creating an inclusive environment where everyone feels at home.

She shares her Leader of the Year title with Jean Bamber, home manager from Skirbeck Court in Boston.

The evening also saw an Unsung Hero award go to Sue Ely, from Eresby Hall.
