Holly House Vets (winner)
Holly House’s entry shows how they utilised innovative methods to raise interest in Rounds in their organisation. Having run Rounds for 12 months, they found difficulties in recruiting panellists. To help with this, they ran a workshop where people would listen to each others stories. It resulted in people realising they had stories to tell and helped to revitalise impetus for Rounds.
