New awards scheme celebrates care home laundry workers

12 July 2021

Commercial laundry specialist, Washco, has launched the new Love Laundry Awards, designed to celebrate those working in care and nursing home laundries who have made a difference during the pandemic. It quickly became apparent to Washco how hard the individuals and teams in laundries have been working to keep their residents and fellow employees safe.

To give the sector the chance to celebrate these laundry room heroes, Washco has launched the Love Laundry Awards. There are two Love Laundry Awards up for grabs: Individual and Team. The winners will be announced at the Washco stand during this year’s Care Show in October.

Commenting on the initiative, Washco managing director, Pete Hosking, said: “We know that care and nursing home laundries play an essential part in managing infection control and keeping residents safe and comfortable. We wanted the opportunity to recognise and hear the stories of those who have made a difference over the last year. The Love Laundry Awards are our small way of saying thank you, shining a light on an area that isn’t always front of mind.” The winner of the Individual category will receive a domestic Miele washing machine, which will be installed in their home.

Washco sales director, James Holmes said: “When installing Miele professional machines into laundries, we often hear that people would love the opportunity to have a Miele domestic machine at home, so this was our opportunity to make it happen.” The winners of the Team category will be able to enjoy a new Sonos speaker system for their laundry room.

Visit and fill in the online entry form. The closing date is the 17thof September. Don’t forget to select the category and say why the individual, or team, should be considered, in 200 words or less. If you are nominating a colleague for more than one category, please make a separate entry for each.
