Care and Support Awards 2018


In spite of the torrential rain and the dense fog, just over 200 guests made it to the Care and Support Awards 2018 gala evening on Friday 9th March 2018 at the Eden Project. The Awards ceremony was opened by Cllr Rob Rotchell, (Portfolio Holder for Adults, Cornwall Council) and our host for the evening was BBC Spotlight's Justin Leigh

It was a fabulous evening of recognition and celebration of the great care and support that is happening day in, day out, across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. Have a look at the video of the Awards evening here.
