MS-UK volunteer wins reward for his efforts

IMG_2185.jpgLongstanding volunteer Nigel Watts has been recognised for his contribution volunteering for MS-UK.

Room to Reward, a unique charity created to give something back to those volunteers who do so much for so many, selected Nigel as the recipient of an overnight hotel stay of his choice.

Room to Reward enables registered charities to give something back to inspirational individuals with a well-earned break at no cost to themselves.

The charity partners with hotels across the UK who donate their anticipated unsold rooms to the scheme. Charities are then invited to nominate their Hidden Heroes for a one or two night, bed and breakfast, complimentary break to enjoy with a friend or loved one.

MS-UK General Manager, Sarah Wright, said: “On behalf of MS-UK I would like to thank Nigel for volunteering with us. He has volunteered in multiple departments across the charity, completed set tasks to a high standard and is always willing to help. He really has helped us make a real difference to people affected by multiple sclerosis.”

At a presentation, which took place at MS-UK’s wellness centre Josephs Court, Nigel said: “I’m surprised and pleased that an exterior body had recognised my volunteering efforts. The reward will come in useful when my wife, son and I go visiting my daughter and grandsons, as I have to stay in a hotel nearby for accessibility reasons.”
