Local Heroes Celebrated And Rewarded By Leading Travel Brand

November 25, 2020 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Trafalgar, the world’s leading travel brand, is launching its Local Heroes initiative today, asking Australians to nominate their ‘Local Hero’ to say Thank You and give them the opportunity to win one of two holidays valued at up to $9,000 each.

The initiative shines a spotlight on the extraordinary individuals in communities around the country that have gone above and beyond for others through what has been an especially tough year for Australians, with the two most inspiring stories being awarded the prize in recognition of their contributions.

The winners will enjoy the trip of a lifetime to a European destination of their choice courtesy of Trafalgar, in partnership with Singapore Airlines. Each prize includes a $5,000 Trafalgar voucher, together with 2 x Economy Class return airfares to Europe with Singapore Airlines to get them to their dream destination in 2021 or 2022. Plus, all nominees and nominators will receive an exclusive Trafalgar tour discount valid through until the end of 2022.

“2020 has been an especially tough year for Australians. People are exhausted and many have been devastated following first the bushfires, then COVID-19 related lockdowns and health concerns, and now the ongoing economic and mental health impacts,” says Katrina Barry, Managing Director of Trafalgar.

 “We are so grateful to the selfless individuals in our communities that have helped Australians get through this year and look forward to being able to recognise and reward these ‘Local Heroes’ for their efforts with this campaign,” Barry added.

 We all know them: Local Heroes. The people that help those in need and build up their communities by keeping them safe, supported and cared for. From individuals aiding in rebuilding the devastating effects of the bushfires, to the frontline workers caring for those affected by COVID-19, or the many volunteers giving their time for so many important causes right across our country.

An absolute local hero is Gold Coast emergency nurse and owner of Southern Cross Assist, Brooke. On a normal day, she’s repatriating stranded ill or injured Aussies back home from around the world, already earning Brooke and her team the accolade in the eyes of her patients. However, it’s Brooke’s efforts in continuing to venture overseas during COVID to assist others, which adds to her ‘hero’ status and is exactly what this initiative is all about.

These amazing Aussies are everywhere – a local business owner creating care pages for the elderly and those who cannot leave their homes, a counsellor aiding those that affected by mental health issues or a teacher who has gone out of their way to support their students and parents who are home schooling throughout these trying times.

Help Trafalgar celebrate these individuals and their efforts large and small by nominating today at and tell us why these Aussies deserve the holiday of their dreams.

Nominations will close at 5.00am AEDT on 11 December 2020 and the winner will be announced on 15 December 2020.

Let’s make travel matter and bring some extra Christmas joy for our heroes!
