Over the past few months, more than ever we’ve been grateful for our frontline workers. And we know you are too. As a thank you, we’re giving away not one, but FIVE amazing two-night luxury pod stays, all with campfire experiences.

To enter all you need to do is nominate someone you think deserves to win this prize and tell your family and friends to get voting!

We also know that essential workers are everyone from doctors, nurses, carers, NHS support staff, people in food production and supermarkets to the dedicated staff driving the trucks that keep our shelves stocked.  So we have created 5 categories so that we don’t forget about anyone – the person with the most votes in each category will be awarded the prize. You can also nominate as many people as you like!

TO NOMINATE: To enter your nomination simply scroll to the end of this page and fill in the quick form about the person.

1. NHS Staff – Doctors, nurses, paramedics, etc
2. NHS Support Staff, cleaners, admin, porters etc
3. Carers – nursing homes, or in-home, social workers, mental health care staff etc
4. Food Production, supermarket staff and supply chain
5. Other – Emergency Services, truck drivers, charity workers, childcare providers etc.*

Please note the above are only a few examples and we understand that there are many more types of essential workers. Please use the ‘other’ category for nominating people if they do not easily fit into categories 1 to 4.
