Nominate Your Hero - Sykes Holiday Cottages

We are in challenging times, the likes of which none of us could ever have expected to see. However, in the midst of so much worry we are seeing communities pull together, the dedication of our NHS and keyworkers, individuals and groups making a big difference each in their own way.

We want to say a heartfelt thank you to all these heroes and give them the chance to win a well-deserved holiday to take when it is safe to do so.

This April & May (09.04.20 – 13.05.20), we are giving away one 2021 holiday each week.

All you need to do is complete our Nomination Form with your hero and we will update our Blog weekly with the winners.

Best of luck, and thank you from all the team here at Sykes Holiday Cottages.


Competition Dates

If you complete and submit the nomination form between 9th April – 13th May 2020, your hero will be entered into the competition to win a holiday that week and each week thereafter.


Week 1: Thursday 9th April to Wednesday 15th April 2020

Winner: Natasha from Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire
Nominated by: Amanda Burton

Nomination: “I would like to nominate Natasha, as she is the most caring and compassionate person I know. Natasha is the manager of the Bereavement dept, who always goes beyond her role to help bereaved families offering care, passion and support, which extends to members of staff who also may need support after having to deal with some very difficult, emotional and upsetting situations.”

Congratulations and a big THANK YOU from the team at Sykes Holiday Cottages.


Week 2: Thursday 16th April to Wednesday 22nd April 2020

Winner: Paula from Croydon, Surrey
Nominated by: Steven

Nomination: “Has spent the last few weeks working in the new ITU Department which they changed from operating theatres. Has held the hand of her colleagues when they break down and cry, has tried her best to arrange shifts to help staff manage their lives as well as work. Dealt with grieving staff and relatives and has come home in tears with the pressures of this terrible virus on numerous evenings. Has stayed late into the evening despite starting early in the mornings. The woman is a machine with a heart the size of a football pitch. If anyone out there deserves a pat on the back and something nice it’s this lady. Thank you…”

Such a deserving winner. THANK YOU from the team at Sykes Holiday Cottages.


Week 3: Thursday 23rd April to Wednesday 29th April 2020

Winner: Kirsten from Dunfermline

Winner: Martin from Nuneaton

Nomination: “He’s been busy working as a key worker in a food manufacturing warehouse making sure all leading supermarkets get their supplies to feed the nation. Non-stop hard work and coming home to his 90 year old parents and making sure they’ve got everything they need too. Had to cancel his holiday for his 53rd birthday in March so this would be perfect for him to rest his feet!”
