The flowers are beginning to bloom. The birds are beginning to chirp. The days are brightening once more. So, it is time to come out of hibernation and enjoy what London has to offer again (and boy are those streets waiting to be walked).
We have never been more grateful and humbled by all that you and your teams have done for us, our families, our teams, and our guests, so we want to thank you once more. To recap, in May 2020, we launched our ‘Nominate Your Hero’ campaign Volume I, where we gave away 545 bedrooms to you, our heroes. In August 2020 we launched our ‘Nominate Your Hero’ Volume II, where we asked passers-by and guests in the hotel to put forward their NHS hero for a chance to win dinner on us, spa treatments, afternoon tea, and the list goes on. As the tiers descended, we made this campaign digital. In January 2021, we launched Volume III, where we gave away over 100 care bundles to our NHS heroes. We are now in the midst of planning volume IV, so sign up below to be the first to know about volume IV and for offers, news and surprises.
2021 so far has not been as expected and now, more than ever our NHS heroes and key workers need some extra TLC, so we have partnered with some amazing brands, including Laurent-Perrier, Sara Miller London, Tony’s Chocolonely, Spitalfields Candles, Natura Bisse, Eau Thermale Avene, LIHA Beauty and Nailberry to donate 100 Care Bundles to the NHS. So, if you know someone who is in need of some extra love and care, fill out one of our Fan Mails, by clicking on the link below (items in the hamper may slightly vary). Volume III has now ended, but stay tuned for volume IV, coming soon.
After the success of our NHS ‘Nominate Your Hero’ campaign in May 2020, we launched Volume II, where we asked you, our day-to-day guests, neighbours and friends to share a story of your NHS ‘hero’. Once a week, we randomly picked one hero story that won an experience in our hotel. The experiences ranged from dinner for two in our riverside restaurant, to a spa treatment in our therapeutic spa playground. If you want to have a look and read some of these heroic stories, then scroll on down. Volume II started from August to December 2020. Then, we launched Volume III…
Not all heroes wear capes. On the front lines of the global crisis caused by COVID-19, our heroes wear scrubs and face masks as they navigate challenging conditions and inadequate resources to save lives.
To celebrate the NHS and healthcare workers who show up day in and day out to help our country survive this pandemic, we launched an initiative to give away 365 overnight stays at Sea Containers London. We were completely overwhelmed by the fantastic response and touched by the heroic stories that were shared with us, so we released a further 180 room nights to our heroes. Once again, from all of us at Sea Containers London, thank you.

The amazing stories submitted will be displayed in our Gallery Space from 15 August, to continue to honour our NHS heroes and inspire us all to show up the way they do every day. But we couldn’t wait to share a few of them with you now, so every day we share one of these stories below.
