Share your lockdown achievements with us

You can now enter this year’s summer competition- Lockdown Achievements!

Lockdown came as a challenge for most of us from adapting to work at home to home schooling, it has been a tough couple of months. However, photos and stories shared with us from our tenants and residents in our extra care schemes and nursing homes have shared the positives and been uplifting as we found that many used the time in lockdown for certain achievements.  

Time has been spent to either learn a new skill or complete a task that you did not have the time to take on previously. Perhaps you learnt to bake your Gran’s favourite recipe or built your garden decking, whatever you managed to achieve, we want to hear about it! 

There are 4 categories to choose from and a winner will be chosen from each category: 

  • Personal achievement - Mastering a new skill 
  • Home achievement - Taking on a DIY project to transform an area in the home or garden 
  • Physical achievement – Completing regular home exercises or workouts that you did not take part in before 
  • Household achievement- As a family, what have you taught or learnt from your child, partner or sibling? 

Enter for your chance to win a £50 shopping voucher!
