So nominate your at-home hero before midnight Sunday 31st May for their chance to win one of ten bespoke thank you packages (it was five, but we've had so many lovely entries that we've DOUBLED the amount of prizes to be won).

What's in the prize?

Our friends at Trouva curate homewares, fashion and gifts from independent boutiques all around London and the UK. They've arranged a special thank you package filled with self-care treats from London-based Earl of East. Each of the ten winners will receive their package, which will include one of Earl of East’s best-selling natural soy wax candles, bath salts, delicious coffee, conserves – and more! 

50% off journeys for the NHS

We’ve been helping the NHS’s teams get to and around at work for years, but during these challenging times, we wanted to do more. That’s why we’ve been working with the NHS trusts to give all NHS and social care staff up to 50% off journeys with Zipcar.
