Winner! My Grand Hero Competition – July

All your entries have been so heartwarming and it has been amazing to read about all your grand heroes! There are some truly outstanding grandparents out there so we thank you for sharing them with us, but there can only be one winner this month…

July’s Grand Hero

Beccy's Grandad Ron

Congratulations to Beccy Rowley who is this month’s winner with her entry: “My Remarkable Grandad”

Our independent Judge at Age Concern Liverpool & Sefton said, “A truly deserving Grand Hero winner”

We were amazed by Beccy’s grandad’s energy as he is still “fit as a fiddle” at nearly 90 years of age.

Beccy said that her grandad has lots of friends and does a lot of volunteer work in his local community to keep himself busy.

Everyone at Bower thinks that Beccy’s Grandad, Ron, is so thoughtful by volunteering and by keeping himself active and busy it clearly keeps him young at heart!

Beccy added,

He has travelled all over the world and is quite a famous man in his local village. He has been on the news many times and was also a torch bearer in the 2012 Olympics. He is truly my superhero.

The prizes!

Winners receive a luxury Hamper which includes delicious food and drink and our very own Bower Bear. They also get to choose a listed charity for Bower to donate £100 to.

Beccy chose Community Christmas, who believe that no elderly person in the UK should be alone on Christmas Day and it is their vision to make sure elderly people have company and companionship on this holiday.

Caroline at Community Christmas was delighted,

“Community Christmas is a small charity where every donation really counts. This win will be particularly welcome as we start to plan our response for Christmas 2017 covering a significant part of our outgoing telephone charges. We are very grateful to Beccy for choosing us for the donation and to all those who took part to celebrate grandparents.”

How you could be our next winner

Don’t worry! There are more chances to win over August and September 2017. But to be in with the chance, you have to enter! You can do this via our submission page or if you are a grandparent, why not share the page with your grand kids.
