Celebrate International Nurses Day with McGettigan’s JLT and The Bonnington Hotel

Nominate your medical hero for the ultimate thankyou staycation package

Dubai, 6th May 2020- In the week running up to International Nurses Day, on the 12th May, McGettigan’s JLT and The Bonnington are encouraging the UAE to nominate five truly deserving nurses for a staycation prize.

Front line workers have been in the UAE’s thoughts in recent months for their continuous bravery and hard work during these uncertain times. Alongside the Together we are Good Campaign, McGettigan’s continues to stay supporters of the local community.

To nominate your chosen medical hero, share a post on Instagram or Facebook nominating a nurse to win, and tag McGettigan's and Bonnington Tower in the post.

So, what does the ultimate Staycation prize look like – imagine arriving at the doors of The Bonnington and being shown to your very own superior room, equipped with luxury touches and top of the range features.

Drop your bags and head down for some delightful Afternoon Tea refreshments in the Authors Lounge. For sunset, make your way to the Leisure Deck within the hotel for a sundowner or two!

After, enjoy a two-course dinner and grape, at McGettigan’s, famous for its home cooked, traditional dishes and bustling atmosphere – the perfect weekend location.

End the staycation with a lie in and breakfast in the Cavendish Restaurant, and make sure to take advantage of a lazy day at the panoramic pool overlooking the city.  

Five winners will be announced on Tuesday the 12th of May, and the staycation is for two people. Head to Instagram and Facebook to find out more and to nominate your medical hero!
