Revitalise is proud to support Yours magazine’s Carer of the Year Awards with respite holiday as main prize
Respite holiday charity is proud to be providing break up to the value of £1,400, as part of Yours magazine’s search for Carer of the Year.
National respite holiday charity Revitalise is proud to be supporting Yours magazine’s first ever Carer of the Year Awards by providing the main prize – a holiday for two at one of the charity’s three accessible respite holiday centres, in Chigwell in Essex, Southampton and Southport*.
Launched on Tuesday 06 November 2018, the Carer of the Year Awards, run in partnership with Betterlife – part of the LloydsPharmacy family – is designed to recognise the contribution of the UK’s estimated 6.8 million unpaid carers.
To celebrate the wonderful care that unpaid carers provide, the awards will give one carer the chance of a well-deserved break. In addition to first prize of a respite holiday with Revitalise for two and a LloydsPharmacy hamper packed with various goodies, there is also the chance to win two runner-up prizes of LloydsPharmacy hampers, along with Echo Dot voice-controlled speaker devices.
Entries are now being accepted and nominations can be made by visiting: https://www.yours.co.uk/yours-recommends/articles/carer-of-the-year-award. Entry closes on 31 December 2018, with the results to be announced in the March 2019 issue of Yours.
Speaking of the importance of supporting Yours magazine’s Carer of the Year Awards, Revitalise CEO Chris Simmonds commented:
“We know from experience that unpaid carers are incredibly devoted to their loved ones, working around the clock to provide the love and support that the person they care for needs. So, when the opportunity for us to support the Carer of the Year Awards came along we were only too pleased to be able to provide the main prize.
“We understand that in order to enjoy a truly revitalising break, it is not time apart from their loved ones that carers want and need, it is time together. That’s why our holidays are designed to do exactly that, to give guests and carers the chance to spend quality time with one another in a relaxed environment where they can reconnect and simply enjoy each other’s company.
“We very much look forward to welcoming the chosen winner of the Yours magazine Carer of the Year Awards to take a break with us.”
