Holidays fit for Heroes

It is fair to say that 2020 has been a strange and, at times, frightening year.

The global Covid-19 pandemic has turned the whole world upside down. Almost every aspect of daily life has changed. From shopping and going out, to working from home, and not being able to see or hug our grandparents, this has been an endlessly challenging time.

But, throughout it all, some people had to keep going.  From teachers to postal workers; doctors and carers; and people in the community, going above and beyond, to prove, as cliche as it sounds, that not all heroes wear capes! 

Over the past few months, thousands of people across Ireland have done, and are still doing, incredible things to help others, and we want to celebrate that!  

Here at Sports Travel International, we’ve been absolutely blown away by the local heroes who’ve helped others in a time of need. We know there are more unsung heroes out there. And now, with your help, we want to give something back! 


We’re looking for local heroes who have a story to share! Someone who has helped their community, family, or strangers throughout this pandemic. 

We’ve set up Holidays Fit for Heroes to say thank you to the heroes who’s helped us all through 2020! We want to give someone a Christmas present this year that they really, really deserve! But, to do that, we need your help.  


If you know a frontline worker or volunteer, who you think would love 1,000 to spend on a holiday with Sports Travel International or Club La Santa Ireland, then tell us their amazing story. Alternatively, if you think YOU deserve to be in with a chance of winning 1,000,  to spend on a holiday for yourself, then please get in touch. 


In  just 150 words tell us what amazing things they/you have done, to go the extra mile during this pandemic. People have brought communities together in so many ways this year. Whoever your hero is, and whatever they’ve done to help, we want to hear about it!

If you, or your hero, is selected by our judge, then they will win a 1,000 worth of vouchers to spend on a holiday of their choice.  

We have really missed taking people on amazing trips around the world this year. Seeing people achieve their goals, and accomplishing their dreams, is what we’re all about. We can’t wait to getting back to what we do best soon!

Our goal is to make 2021 the most active, rewarding, and healthiest year yet. Our trips are guaranteed to make you smile, and keep you moving and feeling fabulous from start to finish. Whether it’s Aerobics in the Lanzarote sun, running past iconic landmarks like Eiffel Tower in one of Europe’s favourite marathons, or rubbing shoulders with your cycling heroes in Tour de France Hospitality, we’re sure we have holidays to suit every taste! 

What better way to say thank you to the hero in your life, then by giving them a break, at a destination they will remember for a lifetime?


Entries must be submitted by 16/12. The winner will be selected by our judge Joanne Murphy. 

Joanne is the voice behind popular sports podcast Tri Talking Sport.  An accomplished event MC, live presenter and international sports announcer, Joanne has worked with brands and events across a wide range of sectors.  She is a global Women for Tri ambassador and the voice of IRONMAN in Ireland. 


We will announce the winner on social media on 24th December; just in time for Christmas! 

The Sports Travel International team, will contact the winner via email, and they will have 7 days to accept their prize. The prize can then be used on holidays for 2021/2022.
