The Only National Awards For Non-Medical / Non-Clinical NHS Staff & Volunteers

Room to Reward | Unsung Hero Awards

Sponsors & Partners

Thanks to our Sponsors for their investment and involvement in the Unsung Hero Awards.

Room to Reward was created to give some time back and say ‘thank you’ to the inspirational volunteers who give up their time and expertise to make a difference where it’s needed most.

It works on a simple premise. Hotels donate a few anticipated unsold rooms every year, charities and community groups nominate their Hidden Heroes for a break, Room to Reward makes it happen. Over 550 hotels located throughout the U.K. have joined the journey, from famous luxurious properties like The Dorchester and major operators like Jurys Inn to small, family-owned B&B’s.

To date, more than 1100 amazing volunteers have been nominated by over 600 organisations. Their stories are compelling, moving and inspiring. From front-line service delivery, fundraising and campaigning to behind-the-scenes admin and IT support, the importance and impact of these wonderful people cannot be overstated. Having given up so much time to help those in need, it’s our pleasure and privilege to give just a fraction of that time back.

We are Pannone Corporate, a commercial law firm based in the heart of Manchester with 29 associated firms in more than 50 cities across the globe.

Since launching in 2014 we have quickly established a reputation for outstanding levels of expertise and support as well as for our distinctly modern and personal approach.
