2020 has been at times a strange and frightening year.
It feels as though the global COVID – 19 pandemic has turned the whole world upside down. Almost every aspect of our day to day lives have transformed. From the closure of bars and restaurants, to working from home, and not being able to see or hug some of our nearest and dearest, this has been an endlessly challenging few months.
Yet, throughout it all, some people kept us all going. From teachers to postal workers; doctors, nurses, and everyone in the incredible NHS; people in our communities, going above and beyond, to bring people together, regardless of how distant we had started to feel.
Over the summer, you showed your gratitude cheering and banging on pots and pans every Thursday night. But, we know there are thousands of people across the UK that are still unsung heroes. People who have done, and are continuing to do, incredible things to help others, and we want to celebrate that!
Here at Sports Tours International, we’ve been absolutely blown away by how much people have sacrificed to help others in their time of need. And now, with your help, we want to give something back!
WE WANT YOU
We’re on the look out for local heroes with a story to share! Individuals, who have done something incredible for the community, their family, friends, or strangers throughout the pandemic.
We want to say thankyou to the heroes who’ve got us through 2020! So, we’re giving someone a Christmas present this year that they really, really deserve! And, to do that, we need your help.
