We have a winning hero!
We are proud to be holding a fortnightly competition to recognise amazing local heroes. These heroes might be NHS staff or doing other roles to help their community at this difficult time.
The heroes have been nominated by someone who is rightly proud of them, and who has taken the time to tell us why.
The winning hero will receive a single float gift card (with an extended expiry date as with all our gift cards at the moment). The float will be a treat for them to look forward to when this unsettling period is over, and a well-deserved relaxation session to soothe their muscles and calm their mind.
All the nominations we’ve received have been inspiring in their own way. It would be far too difficult for us to choose between them, so we chose the winner at random and even made a little video of this happening!
And so this week’s winner is….
Congratulations to Sally and thank you to Chris for nominating her.
“I would like to nominate Sally Mason who is the Head Nurse at Tintern Surgery where she has been looking after the community for more years than I care to count. Sally is always cheerful, always professional and courteous and knows every patient by name. In a world where we are very often just a number of statistic Sally ensures a personal service and attention to detail and treats everyone like they are special. Sally has been there for each of my children and for me and I can always rely on her honesty and integrity. She will administer vaccinations without you barely noticing and is sensitive to children’s fears. Sally has loads of kids herself and now loads of grandkids which she helps look after in her spare time (what spare time?) I am so chuffed to have known her as a friend and as the local nurse and I really think she deserves to win this float.”
Sally sounds like an absolute star, and we can’t wait to host her float when the time comes.
Who will be next?
Each hero can only win once.
If your hero didn’t win this time, and you’d like them to be re-entered you can fill in the form again to make sure that they are entered in the next round.
If you didn’t nominate someone this time – it’s time to join in!
We just ask you to fill in a webform, telling us about your hero, including a minimum of 100 words on why you think they should win. Completing the webform is the only way to enter this competition.
You can find the hero webform here.
The next hero will be drawn on Friday 1st May, and again every fortnight until we re-open the float centre.
We can’t wait to hear about the next round of inspiring heroes… good luck!
