O’Keeffe’s launches Hardest Working Hands Awards



O’Keeffe’s Company has launched the Hardest Working Hands Awards to celebrate members of the catering industry who go the extra mile to get the job done.


The hand care business is inviting people from the fish and chip industry to nominate someone they feel deserves to be rewarded for all the hard work that they do. 

Nominations will be gathered via the O’Keeffe’s social media pages, before a shortlist of the top five hardest working people is chosen by a panel of industry judges.

The shortlisted people and their stories will be shared across the O’Keeffe’s social media platforms and on the O’Keeffe’s website, before going to a public vote to help the judges to choose the overall winner.

Simon Damp, European managing director of O’Keeffe’s Company, said: “At O’Keeffe’s, we constantly receive testimonials from people who work in catering and who regularly use O’Keeffe’s Working Hands hand cream, to provide relief from their dry and cracked hands. This is a condition often attributed to the work that they do, and we want to give something back to the hard-working people, working in catering, who regularly go the extra mile.

“If you know someone who works extra hours to get the job done, who always works to the highest standard, or who gives up their time to work for charities or for the less able people in the community, we want to hear about them.”

The O’Keeffe’s Hardest Working Hands winner will be visited by the O’Keeffe’s team and will receive a bundle of prizes including a Virgin Experience Day and a year’s supply of O’Keeffe’s Working Hands hand cream.

To nominate someone visit the O’Keeffe’s Facebook Page by 13th July
