A MESSAGE FROM R2R
We are absolutely delighted, extremely proud and very, very happy to have passed some major milestones in the last few weeks –
- 500+ Hotel Partners
- 500+ Charity and Voluntary Group Partners
- 1000+ Hidden Heroes Nominated
- £500k+ Breaks Donated
These numbers seemed a distant dream when we started in 2015 and we couldn’t have done it without the help of everyone who makes R2R possible. Thanks to the support of our wonderful hotel partners, the compelling nominations from charities and communities and – of course – the inspirational Hidden Heroes out there making a difference, we are recognising more amazing volunteers than ever.
ROOM TO REWARD – BEHIND THE MILESTONES
Room to Reward is a fantastic way for the hotel industry to give something back to our communities and we are proud to be part of it.
Regarding what the nomination has meant to us, I think it is possibly one of the kindest gestures of thanks we have ever received, I can’t honestly remember the last time we had a relaxing break away properly and with finances being tight it was looking very unlikely for this year too. As with all sixteen year olds my son’s upmost thoughts are with GCSE exams this summer but with his Asperger’s and the anxiety levels this unfortunately is an even more stressful time for him than most. This short break after his exams has given him something positive to look forward too. I cannot express enough how grateful we are for your kindness and support. Thank you.”
"Room to Reward is a genius concept. Simple, effective, highly motivational and something that you should be taking part in. Collectively we can make a real difference to the lives of those who deserve our thanks and applause.“
"It's very humbling to be picked. It's an honour and a privilege to volunteer, but these breaks make it very special for people like myself. Thank you."
"Sometimes in life you don't realise what you've achieved until somebody else says 'Hey - look what you've done!' That's what the nomination to Room to Reward gave to me. It made me think: 'Wow, I really have done something here that made a difference.' I'm so grateful, we still talk about it."
