The catering team at Anchor Homes has won the Chairman¹s Special Award at the National Association of Care Caterer¹s (NACC) awards ceremony in Blackpool. Awarded to the organisation which has made a significant contribution towards the NACC and the care catering sector as a whole, this was the first time the Chairman¹s Special Award was made to an independent care provider. Anchor¹s head of lifestyle services Bob Bird said: “By consistently raising our standards we make a significant contribution to the quality of life of older people. This award is a reflection of the hard work done by the team over the years.” Anchor Homes has Hospitality Assured status awarded by the Hotel and Catering International Management Association, making it the only independent care provider to receive the award across all its homes. Other holders of the award include Center Parcs and London’s Ritz Hotel.
