Our surprise visit to Durham to meet Julie for a Random Act of Kindness

Last month, we asked our Credit Card customers to nominate someone special to receive a treat to mark Random Acts of Kindness Day. We love giving our customers little treats all year round and enjoyed reading through over 4,000 nominations to help us spread that love.

We went to surprise Julie in Durham to show her just how fabulous she is! Julie, a teaching assistant, was nominated by Lynn for all the support she gives to her autistic daughter at school, helping her to flourish and enabling her to enjoy all the great things about being a little girl. Lynn tells us that Julie “goes out of her way to prepare resources that will interest and stimulate our daughter to help her learn”.

Words alone cannot show our appreciation to the difference she has made to our daughter’s life and this act of kindness would show her how much she means to our daughter and her family.

As Julie never has the time to take a break, we’re sending her for a Virgin Experience Days spa weekend at Appleby Manor in the Lake District. With a garden view, access to the luxury spa, dinner and a 2-hour stress-busting treatment, we wanted Julie to enjoy some much deserved relaxation.

We hope she has a brilliant time!


Our next stop was London, see how we got on with surprising Lynne.

Look out for more random acts of kindness from Virgin Money.
