It’s that time of year again. WASHCO, the commercial laundry equipment specialist, will be championing unsung laundry heroes for the third year running with the 2023 Love Laundry Awards. The Love Laundry Awards were established to recognise the hard work and dedication of care homes and their laundry teams, who work tirelessly to keep residents safe.

New for 2023, Washco is launching a third category: Best Care Home Group. This will run in addition to the popular Love Laundry Hero Award, which honours an individual who has gone above and beyond the call of duty, and the Love Laundry Care Home Award, which shines a light on a care home that has implemented outstanding laundry processes.

Commenting on the awards, Washco’s head of marketing and projects, Emily Stoten, said: “The Love Laundry Awards are important to WAshco, allowing us to support and recognise both the people and care homes who make a difference. We are looking forward to reading all the entries, particularly the newly launched Best Care Home Group Award.”

The winner of the Love Laundry Hero Award will receive £250 to spend on electrical goods for themselves, while the Love Laundry Care Home winner will get £500 to spend on electrical goods for their care home. The winner of the new category, Best Care Home Group, will win £500 to spend on electrical goods and receive press coverage, including a case study feature on the Washco website.

The winners of the three awards will be announced at this year’s Care Show in October.
