We waited anticipating the announcement of the result’s, also just proud and privileged to be part of the evening. When they announced our company names as winners of The People Choice Award, the whole staff team erupted with joy and were so pleased and delighted to receive the award, they also couldn’t wait to get into work the following day to celebrate with their colleagues who were not able to attend the evening.

Another staff who has been with company for 15 years said” how wonderful, it was a fantastic award to receive especially because it was from a resident’s family, it means so much more”

In recognition of all the hard work and efforts Plane Tree Court are holding a Day to Celebrate with staff, families, residents, health and social care professionals and anyone who has supported us on this successful journey with their dedication, hard work and commitment whilst also helping to raise the profile of the care sector as a whole.

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day-in and day-out

We are delighted to write this letter to you all as we have achieved this incredible award “People’s Choice Award.”
“Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice and is never the result of selfishness.” As you all know we have come through tough and hardship at various times during our personal and professional life and there are days that all of us felt frustrated, but we have arisen as a Phoenix. This award will pay off such thoughts and feelings.

Now Plane Tree has become a part of the history of Stockport as this is the first time in Stockport’s history it has conducted an award event for care homes. We were short listed for three categories from over 55 care homes in Stockport. Therefore each staff member at Plane Tree should be proud of this achievement and it should uplift the good practices to outstanding ones. This award should be our stepping stone for many more achievements. (We have to be milestones of the history of the leading care homes in Stockport).
We would like to thank you all for your support and adorable good work for plane Tree Court. It is highly appreciated. Keep up the good work.

Together Everyone
