1 Let’s celebrate Grandparents! By The Bower Team / In Company News We have launched a fantastic competition called My Grand Hero as we feel it’s time to celebrate all the amazing grandparents out there. We want you all to upload a picture of your grandmas and grandpas and tell us what makes them your heroes. We want to hear all your stories, whether your grandparents have done something extraordinary or maybe they have just been there for you and have made you smile. You can even share something in memory of them to reflect on good times past. Whatever your reason, we feel they need to be acknowledged for the heroes they are. Here at Bower Retirement, we feel it’s important to take a moment to appreciate family. We also feel it’s vital to keep in touch with older family members as loneliness is a growing concern. We’ve launched this competition to bridge the gap and to put a smile on grandparent’s faces by recognising all the Grand Heroes out there. The My Grand Hero competition is running from 3rd July 2017 and closes on 28th September 2017. Throughout this time there will be 3 winners selected by our independent judge at Age Concern. The Winners will be announced each month, with the final winner announced on 1st October – Grandparent’s Day!
