We are very proud and delighted to be sponsoring the Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Staff Awards that will be held later in the year. The award we are sponsoring is the Volunteer of the Year award that will be presented at the ‘Celebrating Success ball’. This award celebrates exceptional volunteers who are an important and integral part of their hospital team.

This event will take place on Friday 8 November 2019 at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool.

The Celebrating Success Awards takes place to recognise the excellent care and treatment received by patients at the hospitals, clinics and health centres run by the Trust.

Best of luck to all those who have been nominated.
