Samantha Richardson – Marwood Park, Durham

May 2017

Samantha Richardson a Support Worker at Marwood Park in our Durham services received a pleasant surprise when I turned up as she started her night shift one evening in May!.

Samantha was nominated by her Manager Claire McCabe for her dedication and commitment to the Clients and staff team at Marwood Park. Samantha had been supporting a Client to develop a sensory room and engaged the work of a local artist to brighten up a dull part of the Clients home. She spent time with the Client and his family and the project faced a number of hurdles but this didn’t stop Samantha.

When she was presented with the award she said she was “doing a job she loved” – I agreed with her Managers nomination that this was a significant achievement that made a difference to a Clients quality of life. I had the pleasure of being shown the sensory room and the mural that covers the whole room in a magical woodland forest theme and it really was amazing!. It is for this reason that Samantha was awarded St Anne’s employee of the month!
