Healthcare staff and volunteers have been rewarded for their hard work and dedication at an awards ceremony.
The event, held at New York Stadium in Rotherham, recognised the ‘fantastic’ job the staff and volunteers do every day at Rotherham, Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH) to support and improve the lives of others.
There were multiple awards given on the night, including volunteer of the year. The award was won by Susan Hodgson, who is a volunteer mentor at Aspire, a group which supports people with drug and alcohol problems to beat their addictions.
Lawson Pater, Chairman of the Trust, said: “This event showcases the fantastic achievements and exemplary work of our staff and volunteers. It’s our way to say a big thank you to them for their enthusiasm, energy and for going the extra mile for our patients, services users and clients.”
