Pete, who is the chairman for the charity and a judge for the category said of Irene that “Irene impressed us with her initiative of the very competitive Exec Curry Cook-off in early May which featured myself alongside the executive board. A lot of work went into the organising and fundraising, and thanks to Irene’s masterful execution of the event we raised £2,867 for the Foundation. The foundation means so much to a lot of people and Irene did a fantastic job rallying our team together for a very successful venture.”

Irene said of her win that, “I am very proud, and very honoured to be receiving this award. We work hard here at Barchester a focus on the people we care for, and not for accolades, but it really is very special to be recognised in this way.”
