Do you know someone who’s making life better for others? Now’s your chance to thank them with a Rays of Sunshine Award


We could all do with a little more sunshine in our lives and every day there are people who go above and beyond to brighten the lives of those around them.

Whether its someone who helps their elderly neighbours with their shopping, or the doctor who drives out to see his patients. Sometimes they are big, like the parents who give up their jobs to look after their child who is living with a serious or life-limiting illness. Either way, their dedication and generosity are an inspiration to us all and we’re asking YOU to shine a light on the unsung heroes of YOUR community by nominating them for an award we’re launching today with Woman’s Weekly magazine

It’s simple to put someone forward for a category. Just tell us, in no more than 500 words, why you are nominating your ‘Ray of Sunshine’. Anyone can be put forward, as long as they’re making a difference to the life of someone else in their community. 

All entries must include a photograph. Winners will receive a prize and appear in a feature in a future issue of Woman’s Weekly. 

For full details on how to enter and prizes, please see the terms and conditions on the nomination form, which can be picked up in store at The Fragrance Shop or downloaded from *
