Ongoing competition giveaways to champion and reward care workers, family caregivers and unpaid carers.
We kickstarted our Nights on Lottie pledge with a Christmas and New Year's Special in 2022. Lottie partnered with Unplugged to give carers a chance to relax and unwind by gifting 33 winners a free 3-night stay at a beautiful countryside cabin of their choice.
The winners were chosen at random and were able to book their three-night stay at one of Unplugged's cabin using a unique code and on any date in 2023, to rest and recharge at a time convenient to them.
While sadly not every carer could be a winner of the 2022 Christmas giveaway, we're already in the process of organising the next Nights on Lottie, as part of our wider 1,000 free nights pledge.
Throughout December we'll be running our own carers Christmas countdown, giving away a selection of vouchers to a new winner each day.
From Tuesday 5th to Friday 15th December, we'll be giving away a different prize each day to a carer in the UK.
Nominate yourself today and share your experience of being a carer in 2023 to win theatre tickets, Sainsbury's vouchers and much more, so you can enjoy the ultimate night in or out on Lottie this Christmas.
Nights on Lottie is proud to launch its first giveaway in partnership with well-known public figure, Anton Du Beke.
Anton is best known for being a British ballroom dancer and judge on popular BBC One celebrity dancing show - Strictly Come Dancing. However, less known to the public, is Anton's mother was a Carer and his passion for supporting the amazing work UK caregivers do. Anton regularly makes time to surprise visits to care home residents, and most recently made a special guest appearance at Isle Court Nursing Home in Bickton, as part of BBC's Queen's Platinum Jubilee Pageant coverage in June.
Nights on Lottie is proud to partner with the Care Workers Charity, the UK’s leading charity for supporting current and former care workers with financial grants and other support services. The CWC was founded in 2009 and today is led by Karolina Gerlich, whom previously was a carer for over 12-years.

Rachel worked in care for six years in her local community and loved making people smile. After her son Riley had an accident, she had to stop work and needed financial help. Her six years work in care meant she qualified for a grant, helping her through a tough period in her life.
