Do you live next to an ambulance driver who worked back-to-back shifts?  Or do you have a neighbour who put their community first? Pandemic helpers, volunteers, key and essential workers, our emergency services and those in the public sector can all be nominated: individually, in couples or even teams.

July 4th is a day of celebration in the US and the date last year when Hotel announced its competition to win a holiday to New York. The Hotel launched in February 2020 only to close with the first lockdown – reopening for a short while last summer before closing again.  Hard hit though it has been, it recognises that its trials are not a patch on those of the great people of Manchester  – so the hotel team are planning a bash to celebrate the resilience of Mancunia and the amazing dedication of Mancunians. This is how to really say ‘Thank you’ in style.
