Trafalgar launches new competition to reward local heroes

Trafalgar has launched a new initiative that asks Australians to nominate their local hero and give them the opportunity to win a holiday.

The ‘Local Heroes’ initiative aims to shine 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.

The two most inspiring stories will be awarded a holiday valued at $9,000 in recognition of their contributions.

The winners will enjoy a trip 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 two economy-class return airfares to Europe with Singapore Airlines to get winners 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.

Trafalgar managing director Katrina Barry said 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, she said.

“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.”
