DELICIOUS desserts have won a Doncaster woman the title of employee of the year at her company’s annual award ceremony in London.

Donna Sharp works for Sodexo – catering for the pupils, students and staff at the Doncaster Deaf Trust

She walked away with the Sodexo Employee of the Year award, for the whole of the UK and Ireland, at a bash that was guest-hosted by sports presenter Gabby Logan and Rugby legend Matt Dawson.

Donna picked up the award after being nominated by colleague Pat Metcalf from the Deaf Trust, for her consistently high standard of work and her chocolate desserts... for which she recently picked up a merit in another competition.

Donna said: “It was great to receive the award, especially for doing something I just thought was my job”.

Aiden Connolly, CEO of Sodexo, added: “Our overall winner was Donna Sharpe who is a lovely, modest lady whose efforts are clearly appreciated by the children and our client. Well done.”

Bobbie Roberts, chair of trustees at the Doncaster Deaf Trust, said: “Congratulations to Donna, she really deserved the award.”

The 30th Sodexo Star Awards honour culinary experts from across the UK and Ireland.
