Celebrations for 25 Years of Eastgate Providing Care, 1990 to 2015 and home for an estimated quarter of a million individuals, recently took place. The staff are what really makes the difference on a daily and yearly basis – this was borne out at these Long Service Awards at County Hall, Nottingham. This special occasion was marked by the gathering of 100 personnel, many serving in excess of 20 years; new staff, suppliers and business partners, joined to celebrate the business success. Additional awards went to current personnel for their outstanding commitment. The festivity was assisted by a cocktail reception and a string quartet accompaniment, easing into a dinner, gift awards and speeches.
