A woman who took a chance when she spotted a job advert has reaped the benefit by receiving a prestigious award.

Brave mum Carolyn Hall who has battled against Crohn’s Disease, was among those honoured at a ceremony at City Hall, Cardiff.

The MC was opera singer Wynne Evans, aka as Gio Compario from the Go Compare TV adverts..

She was among the winners at this year’s Wales Care Awards organised by Care Forum Wales to recognise good practice in the sector.

The 48-year-old mother of one received a bronze award in the category for Supported Living or Small Group Community Living Practitioner.

Carolyn was looking for something to fill her time when she spotted the advert for a domiciliary care worker by the Barry-based company All Care South Wales Limited.

“I didn’t really think it was going to be for me, but I thought I’d give it a go,” she explained.

She was nominated for the award by her line manager Ceri Anne Gratton, who commented: “Carolyn has a holistic approach to her work and communicates simple ideas to her supervisors to enable care packages to run smoothly.

“Her work with individuals suffering with dementia has been exceptional and the praise she has received has proved her commitment and passion for her role.”
