Colin Bennett from Woodland View Care Home has been awarded 'Volunteer of the Year' at the Barchester Care Awards 2017. The Volunteer of the Year award is given to an individual who shows real passion and dedication by freely giving time and energy at one our homes, hospitals or complex care services and this is something that Colin certainly does!
Colin is retired and visits from Woodland View most Mondays to play the piano for the residents. He also brings his dog Martha along with him and together they entertain, engage and put smiles on people's faces. Colin received a lot of nominations, all saying how much his visits mean to residents and how much everyone enjoys his company and his funny stories!
