Room to Reward (www.roomtoreward.org) arranged a special break for a very special volunteer..
Grove of Narberth welcomed lifelong volunteer Lucy Jones for a well-earned break as part of an initiative to say ‘thank you’ to society’s Hidden Heroes. The hotel is part of Room to Reward, a unique charity that encourages hotels throughout the U.K. to donate their anticipated unsold rooms so that other charities and voluntary groups can give some time back to their outstanding volunteers.
Lucy, 85, was nominated by Trefoil Guild. A previous volunteer with Brownies and Guides, Lucy is an invaluable source of support and inspiration for the Guild and has been helping people in her community all her life.
As a ‘thank you’ for her commitment to helping others, Lucy and husband Dennis enjoyed a two-night break at Grove of Narberth, who joined the Room to Reward scheme last year.
Neil Kedward, owner, said: “We were delighted to welcome Lucy and Dennis for a well-earned break. Room to Reward is a fantastic initiative to be part of and for our first visitor to be a Hidden Hero who has done so much for Trefoil Guild and countless other organisations in Wales made it extra-special.”
Adam Terpening, Director of Room to Reward, said: “Lucy is an inspirational person and the epitome of a Hidden Hero. It was a pleasure to read her nomination and we are thrilled she had such a wonderful break. We would like to thank Neil, Zoe and everyone at Grove of Narberth for their fantastic support of Room to Reward.”
Lucy is one of more than 500 Hidden Heroes who have benefited from the Room to Reward scheme. Over 330 hotels and 280 charities have now joined up to say ‘thank you’ and give some time back to those who give up so much for others.
