Room to Reward are delighted to announce a new partnership with the Unsung Hero Awards to recognise the contribution of non-medical volunteers to the NHS.

Room to Reward will support the ‘Volunteer of the Year’ category with a mini-break for the three shortlisted nominees in one of the hospitality charity’s hotel partners.

Adam Terpening – Charity Director of Room to Reward – said: “We are absolutely delighted to be able to support the Unsung Hero Awards and celebrate the outstanding contribution of volunteers to our NHS.

"Room to Reward was created to say ‘thank you’ to the Hidden Heroes, people who give up their time to help those in need. The NHS is a national treasure and it’s our pleasure and privilege to give a little something back to the inspirational people who give so much to it.”

Laura Tomlinson, Relationship Manager of the Unsung Hero Awards, said: “Our volunteer nominees are the epitome of Unsung Heroes. It’s wonderful to be able to give them back a little bit of the time they have selflessly given to the NHS and we’d like to thank Room to Reward for their support.”

Room to Reward works on a simple premise. Hotels are asked to donate their anticipated unsold rooms to the initiative, who then invite registered charities to nominate their outstanding volunteers for a well-earned break in recognition of their dedication and impact.

Over 325 hotels are now part of the scheme and more than 450 Hidden Heroes have been nominated for a break.

The Unsung Hero Awards take place on March 1st at The Hilton Hotel in Manchester.
