Your chance to win £100 - the results
Just – wow!
The competitionFor our latest competition we asked our card holders to tell us, in their own words, what advice they would give someone that had just started their journey as an unpaid carer.
The judgingGoing through the various pieces of advice was no easy task for our panel. As we read through each and every one it was easy to see just how much people care. This wasn't just about winning but also about carers just wanting to help other carers. The advice that was submitted ranged from providing; guidance, support, knowledge, encouragement and everything in-between. We can't emphasise enough just how difficult the task of picking the winner was. In fact, one of our panellists, Veronica, was actually bought to tears at one point. If we could, we would give each and every one of you a prize but unfortunately this just isn't possible. So, there can only be one overall winner and 10 runners up.
The winner is…After much deliberation we can announce that the winner of this competition is Nadia Ramz from Oxfordshire. Nadia's advice can be seen below:
"If you're a carer that means you must be a very special person. You have been given a gift to protect and care for. It takes a lot of strength, determination, care, patience and love above everything. You are strong even on the days you feel weak. You're a fighter even when you get defeated. Don't give up you will win at the end. Very proud to be part of you all."
The panel thought that this advice had a little of everything. It not only gave some brilliant advice but it brilliantly encapsulated encouragement and perseverance.

Thank you everyone!The team at CarersCardUK believe that the advice that was provided by our card holders (carers) is just too valuable not to pass on to other carers. Therefore, as a thank you we'll be creating a special page on both our website and app that showcases everyone's advice. Once again, thank you so much for taking part. Even if you were unlucky this time, it's important to know that your participation will potentially help other people as they start their journey as a carer. This in itself makes you a winner.
