Sale care home searches for local heroes

March 9th 2020

A new care home in Sale is asking the surrounding community to nominate ‘local heroes’ for the chance to win a £500 cash prize.

Care UK’s Oakfield Croft, which opens on Monday 23rd March, is searching for local people or organisations who consistently change people’s lives for the better, regardless of whether it’s friends, family or the local community.

The winner of the ‘local heroes’ competition will receive a £500 cash prize and be invited to the opening of the area’s newest care home at its grand launch event in May.

Daniel Cole, home manager at Oakfield Croft, said: “We all know that one special person who makes a positive impact on the people around them each every day. Whether it’s the coach who ferries children to and from matches on the weekend, the teacher who tutors in their own time or the volunteer who organises local fundraisers – we want to reward them.

“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 by the 27th April 2020 and explain in 100-400 words why they deserve to be rewarded.

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.

For more information about potential residency at Oakfield Croft, the marketing suite is open from daily, to book an appointment call customer relations manager, Jayne Eyre, on 07710 396169.
