Golden Leas Holiday Park on Sheppey offering free week-long caravan stay

A holiday park is offering a free, week-long break to someone who deserves it when lockdown is lifted.

Golden Leas Holiday Park on Sheppey is asking people to nominate friends, family or colleagues who've been having a tough time during the pandemic and could do with a relaxing trip in one of the site's mobile homes when it's all over.

You can put up to three names forward on the company's Facebook post pinned to the top of the page, and have until Friday, May 22.

The offer can only be used when the park has re-opened, it is safe to travel and will need to be used before December 2021.

But this isn't the only thing the Minster business is doing - it is also offering two mobile homes for key workers to stay in if they need to self-isolate.

General manager Jo Treadgold is in touch with Swale Borough Council to help find suitable occupants and one of the caravans has already been claimed.

Plus the 31-year-old has been putting together boxes of fresh fruit and vegetables - lots of which is supplied by Brambledown Farm Shop - and distributing them to NHS staff, care homes and vulnerable residents.

Mrs Treadgold said: "Initially, I was only going to do it once but the amount of people who had a tear in their eye and were so grateful made me want to do it again. Me and my wife have now been out three times and delivered about 50 boxes and plan to do more. I feel we can use our power as a business to do good."
