A new care home in Ashford is asking the community to nominate ‘local heroes’ for the chance to win a £500 cash prize.
Care UK’s Montfort Manor, on Kennington Road, is searching for local people or organisations who go above and beyond for their community, friends or family, and have a positive impact on the local area.
The winner of the ‘local heroes’ competition will receive £500 and be invited to the opening of Ashford’s newest care home at its grand launch event in January 2020. There will also be two runners up who will win £200 for second place and £100 for third.
Cheryl Shorter, home manager at Montfort Manor, said: “We all know that one person who organises everything, is always there for others and never shies away from offering a helping hand – so here at Montfort Manor we want to say thank you.
“Whether they’re a volunteer at a local charity, a community group that really makes a difference to the area, or simply someone who goes that extra mile for others – share your story with us so we can reward them with the treat they deserve.”
To nominate your ‘local hero’, visit https://www.careuk.com/care-homes/montfort-manor/local-heroes before midnight on 30th November and explain in 100-400 words why they deserve to be rewarded.
The marketing suite at Montfort Manor is open and locals are welcome to visit and take a look around the home.
Opening in Autumn 2019, and designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence, the new care home will incorporate space for hobby and leisure activities. The layout of the building will be configured into a series of individual suites, each having a dedicated lounge/dining room to help facilitate the creation of close-knit communities.
