Runwood Homes resident at Waterfield House receives Platinum Champion award
On Friday the 29th of July, Waterfield House, operated by Runwood Homes, celebrated Mary’s Platinum Champion award by the Royal Voluntary Service.
Major Mary Hartley, a resident at Waterfield House care home, was awarded the Royal Voluntary Service’s Platinum Champion Award, and to celebrate, the team at Waterfield House threw a party in honour of such an esteemed accomplishment.
She was awarded the prestigious title of major for dedicating over 15 years of service to the Salvation Army.
The Platinum Champions Awards launched in honour of Her Majesty The Queen, and the great example she has set in her 70 years of service and recognises the outstanding contribution of volunteers across the UK.
Mary was impressively selected as one of the 490 Platinum Champions from over a staggering 3,000 nominations.
The Waterfield House family could not be happier for Mary and her brilliant achievement. Mary was invited to attend a party at the Palace to receive her award from Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall, but, as she was unable to travel, the team threw a brilliant party at the home to celebrate all that she has achieved.
The event welcomed family, friends and the town Mayor of Hadleigh, Gordon McLeod, to mark this special occasion.
Waterfield House Home Manager, Amanda Thackery, said: ‘We are so very proud that Mary has been given the recognition she deserves and to receive an award. We have heard lots of stories of how Mary has supported people through the good times and the bad. She is truly an amazing lady who has dedicated her life to the service of others, and we are over the moon to have celebrated with her, and the community, at Waterfield House.’
