Oualie Beach Resort on Nevis is giving away free week-long trips to thank NHS doctors and nurses on the frontline.

There will be 20 holidays, each for an NHS staff member and a plus one, up for grabs on a first-come-first-serve basis on bookings. Of course the trips won’t be available until the lockdowns are withdrawn.

UK visitors fly with British Airways or Virgin Atlantic from Gatwick airport to St Kitts via Antigua.

“Many of our resort’s clients are from the UK and we are saddened by the daily devastating news of loss of life and loss of livelihoods,” said John Yearwood, host and managing director of the resort.

“The courage of the frontline staff of the NHS in risking their own health to save lives is truly inspiring and deserves recognition.”Nevis has so far had four confirmed cases of Covid-19.

NHS staff can get the offer by being one of the first 20 to book a stay at Oualie, on 01245 459 900, when the lockdown is lifted. Flights are not included.
