Win a Break this Founders’ Day

04th Nov 2021

After 100 years of serving those who spend so much of their time protecting, healing, teaching and looking after others, we understand the value of taking a break and time out to pause, reflect and gather one’s thoughts. Which is why on 4 November, our 100th birthday, we’re encouraging all our members to take time out today. Whether a 5 minutes breather outside or a longer, group session of sports, lunch break or book club.

Take a break toolkit

We’ve brought together loads of fun and helpful resources to help you plan and implement your break. It includes practical ideas as well as posters, checklists and other tools to ensure you get the most out of this time to yourself.

Share your break and win some fab prizes

The best part of taking a break is not only finding the time to pause and reflect for your own wellbeing, but it’s an excellent opportunity to connect with colleagues, family and friends. To find like-minded people who share your passions and hobbies and begin new supportive communities to take forward.

Which is why we’re encouraging members to share their ideas and opportunities with us and our social communities through our social channels.

Have a coffee on us

We’re also giving away a £5 Costa Coffee voucher to the first 1,500 lucky members.

We’re sending all our members a unique Costa Coffee voucher code to download. The first 1,500 members to download the code will be able to redeem that £5 voucher for a treat of their choice at any Costa Coffee shop.

Check your email inbox today, to see if you’ve been lucky.

Grab a luxury break on us

We’re also giving away vouchers for a luxury stay in some gorgeous hotels.

To be in with a chance to win, simply share a photo and tag us on Facebook and Instagram to show us how you’re taking a break, using the hashtag #CSSC100years.

Enter before midnight on 4 November

We’ll select 15 entries at random to win gift vouchers for our partner, Bespoke Hotels, so you can take a break at the UK’s finest boutique and luxury hotels, from country houses to chic retreats. 

There are 5 £250 gift vouchers and 10 £150 gift vouchers up for grabs. To find out more about Bespoke Hotels and where the gift vouchers can be used, visit the Bespoke Hotels website. Vouchers will be valid for 12 months. 

CSSC members can also get 25% a 2-night bed and breakfast stay with Bespoke Hotel booking until 31 March.

Upcoming centenary events

We have loads of events coming up. And while today is our birthday, the celebrations keep going throughout 2022. Here are just a taster of some of the interesting centenary events coming up.

However you take time out today, we hope you find the time to pause, reflect and consider your health and wellbeing for today, tomorrow and the rest of the month.

Happy Founders’ Day from all at CSSC
