The owners of hotel group Signature Living are to give away £150k of their own money to staff, customers and the public to celebrate 10 years of the brand.
Lawrence and Katie Kenwright, owners of 30 James Street and The Shankly Hotels will commemorate a decade since starting the business by giving away a series of 10 prizes each month to members of the public, dubbed the ‘biggest ever giveaway’.
One of the prizes will be payment for IVF treatment, as well as the ‘perfect proposal’ and the ‘perfect Signature wedding’, which will include all planning, venue, accommodation and entertainment as part of the prize.
Other prizes include a new car, family holiday, a luxury cruise and a home and garden makeover.
Signature Living boss Katie Kenwright said: “Lawrence and I wanted to do something very different to celebrate our anniversary at Signature Living. The last ten years have been life changing for us both and we have been through some challenging and also very happy times. Family is everything to us and so we didn’t want to just throw a lavish party to celebrate this.
“We wanted to give other people an opportunity in life to win a unique prize or a special occasion.”
Former retail entrepreneurs decided to embark on a new adventure in 2008 and have since built the company to be worth over £500m, comprising 13 hotels and development projects across the UK.
They operate 30 James Street, The Shankly, The Exchange Cardiff The Arthouse, Signature Living Hotel, Signature Living and employ 840 staff.
Throughout 2018/2019 there are seven hotel projects under construction across the UK including the second phase of The Exchange Hotel Cardiff, the football-themed Dixie Dean Hotel in Liverpool, the new Shankly Hotel Preston and Loyolla Hall in St Helens.
Signature Living is also investing £80M into Northern Ireland with the opening of three major hotels in Belfast.
The George Best hotel — which has been built in tribute to the late great Manchester United Footballer – and the Signature Living Wareing Hotel in Belfast will both open in December of this year.
The development of the former Crumlin Road jail and court house into the £15M Crum Hotel – which presided over all of the terrorist court trials in the province — will also open next year.
