Recognising the selfless

NURSES and health workers are the heartbeat of our community, having dedicated their careers to looking after not only our wellbeing but in many cases saving lives. This award acknowledges the work of those who provide this vital 24/7 service, which sometimes has to be delivered under extreme pressure but always with calming reassurance and a caring smile. If you know of a health care individual or team you feel deserves special mention, this is your chance to say thank you.

EACH YEAR, thousands of islanders are helped by doctors, nurses, medics and social and health workers and we are fortunate to have so many amazing health professionals here in Guernsey.
The Angel of the Year award recognises those individuals and teams who dedicate their lives to looking after people at a time they need it the most.
The hours are long and often anti-social, the work can be tiring and unglamorous but the care and support they give never wanes. They make Guernsey the unique and special place it is and deserve to recognised.
Ravenscroft has been sponsoring the Angel of the Year category at both the Pride of Guernsey and Pride of Jersey Awards since they were first launched.
Every year, Ravenscroft provides financial support through sponsorship and donations to charities, voluntary organisations, sporting clubs and community and cultural events. We know the difference that our support makes to the thousands of people involved in the wide range of events and activities, but we also know that none of it would happen without all those who organise, volunteer and officiate. That’s why Ravenscroft is delighted that we can once again be part of the Pride of Guernsey Awards, which recognises those in the community who selflessly give their time to help others.
We hope that islanders will help us once again find and celebrate Guernsey’s angels.
Mark Bousfield, group managing director, Ravenscroft
