Award Joy for Leeds OAP Champion

Champion carer Tracy Hiscoe went the extra mile when one of her elderly charges was too ill to attend his son's wedding. She organised a special wedding party at the Simon Marks Care Home in Wortley, Leeds, so that the pensioner could feel part of celebrations on the big day. Now Tracy's determination to do her level best for pensioners in her care has earned her a national award, as she has been crowned Dignity Champion of the Year in the Grand Final of the Anchor Smile Awards.

The Anchor Smile Awards are run by Anchor, England's largest not-for-profit provider of housing and care for older people.

Tracy said: "Dignity in care is so important to me - it's at the root of everything I do, so this award is incredibly meaningful. I can't wait to take it back to Simon Marks Court and show my friends and colleagues."
