TV actress and media personality Sherrie Hewson has been appointed an Avery Healthcare ambassador.
Sherrie, who appears as Joyce Temple-Savage in ITV’s sitcom Benidorm, became passionately concerned about the sector following her mother’s experience of being in care.
She sees Avery as being at the forefront of best practice and is keen to get behind the provider’s model and message, while continuing to act as a prominent voice in social care.
Amongst many career highlights, Sherrie appeared for 14 years on Loose Women, had two stints in Coronation Street as Maureen Webster, took the role of Lesley Meredith in Emmerdale, spent ten years on the Russ Abbot Show, and appeared on Crossroads and In Loving Memory. She also appeared in Z Cars and Carry On Behind and Carry On Laughing.
Sherrie will be visiting all 54 of the Avery care homes around the country in the next year and bringing her energetic and lively personality to delight residents and staff alike.
