Beccy Harley, the catering manager for CH&Co Group at Sue Ryder Nettlebed Hospice in Henley-on-Thames, celebrated double success at the recent Sue Ryder Southern Women Achievement Awards. She scooped two prestigious awards at a special event held at Reading Town Hall – the Sue Ryder Recognition Award and, the highest accolade of the evening, the Robyn Jones Southern Woman of Achievement Award.
Harley said: “I’m thrilled and overwhelmed to have won these awards. I love working at the hospice and being able to make a difference. Food is so important in end-of-life care for patients and relatives, both physically and emotionally. I lost my husband to cancer so I know how comforting it is to see a loved one enjoy a meal and to share food with them.
“Giving our patients and their families the finest, freshly-prepared food that they want to eat, when they want to eat it, is what drives me and the team. These awards recognise their hard work too.”
Tim Jones, chairman of CH&Co Group , added: “My wholehearted congratulations to Beccy Harley. Her commitment to the Nettlebed Hospice patients and their families is incredible and she deserves such prestigious recognition.”
