A VITAL Ribble Valley organisation has won an award for the hard work it does helping people around the borough.
Crossroads Care Ribble Valley was awarded the runners up prize for the Care Agency of the Year by Lancashire Link – an organisation championing local health and social care issues throughout the region.
The award was presented by BBC North West correspondent Laura Yates and was received for Crossroads by Dr Mike Smith, deputy chairman of Crossroads. A spokesman for the orgnanisation said: “This recognises the ‘heroes or heroines’ of the care professions who showed exceptional care and compassion to those they cared for.
“There were more than 70 nominations and one of the local carers, who recommended Crossroads, described how the service went that extra mile to support both the carers and people that are being cared for.”
