Do you know a carer who has gone beyond the call of duty?

Local people are being urged to nominate an individual or team who have made a real difference to their family for the second Norfolk Care Awards.

With almost a month to go before nominations close, organisers are calling on people to put forward carer and support service workers who have delivered excellent care.

More than 100 nominations were received last year for the inaugural Norfolk Care Awards, which celebrate the importance of the care sector.

Some of the winners of last year's awards spoke of their pride at being recognised for their work.

Angela Rankin, of Holmwood House Care Home, in Swaffham, who won the 'bringing people together through activities' category, said: 'Winning the award was a fantastic feeling, appreciation, achievement and recognition, for a very rewarding job.'

Sherylanne Hodgins, of Avery Lodge Residential Home in Southtown Road, Great Yarmouth, which won the Archant-sponsored learning and development award, added: 'For a small independent home this is the best thing that could have happened.'
