A new care home in Shinfield is asking the community to nominate ‘local heroes’ for the chance to win a £300 cash prize.
Care UK’s Parsons Grange on Westall Street 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 £300, while the two runners up will win £200 for second place and £100 for third.
Ruth Halls, home manager at Parsons Grange, said: “We know how challenging the last few months have been, so here at Parsons Grange, we want to find those people who have gone above and beyond to support their communities and 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 www.careuk.com/shinfield-heroes before Thursday 31st December and explain in 100-400 words why they deserve to be rewarded.
The care home has officially been named ‘Parsons Grange’ after Louisa Parsons, a nurse trained by Florence Nightingale. Decorated for her service in the British Army, she also founded the University of Maryland School of Nursing, before moving back to England and spending the latter part of her life in Shinfield.
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.
