Last month, we reported that a team of Kent wedding suppliers have come together to offer an incredible competition to win a wedding day, as a huge thank you to one, or indeed couple, of our amazing NHS workers. The competition opens for entries at 8pm tonight (Tuesday 19th May) at www.weddingforthenhs.co.uk, and the stakes are now even higher as the prize value now stands at a jaw-dropping £35,000!!!
Lou Finn of Bake to the Future told us, “Like many wedding suppliers, I’ve found myself currently unable to work and handling a stream of postponements for weddings that were due to take place in the coming weeks and months. The Covid-19 pandemic is unlike anything we have experienced before and in these hard times I wanted to find a way to give back to those who are sacrificing so much right now - our incredible NHS staff. As such, I have brought together a team of Kent wedding suppliers to collaborate in gifting a wedding to one very special couple where one, (or both) of them works for the NHS."
