A “bubbly” Boston care home manager who goes “above and beyond for the residents” has been honoured in a countywide awards programme.

Jean Bamber, home manager at Skirbeck Court in Spilsby Road, was named a 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 to celebrate its stand-out care workers throughout the county.

This year’s event – the ninth in its history – was held recently at a lunch at the Petwood Hotel, in Woodhall Spa.

Presentations were carried out by the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire, Andrew Clark.

A spokesman for the OSJCT said: “Jean was given the award for her bubbly personality and for going above and beyond for the residents, working hard to ensure their lives are always enhanced.”

Jean shares her Leader of the Year title with Donella Savage, home manager at Eresby Hall in Spilsby.

The OSJCT was established in 1991 and is one of the UK’s largest not-for-profit care home providers.
