Meet the winners (2020)
The Star Awards 2020 recognises the hard work and dedication of colleagues’ right across our Trust this year.
The ceremony was a digital event, which could be viewed by staff in their work areas and homes and was hosted by ITV weatherman Des Coleman, who is also a former Eastenders star.
This year we received the largest number of nominations in the history of the Star Awards – over 700. Nominations included acts of kindness and stories of overcoming hurdles to provide outstanding leadership. Each nomination had a common thread – our organisation has some remarkable people working here.
Congratulations to everybody that was shortlisted and to all of our winners. Their dedication and hard work make our Trust a special place to work.
