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 meet Lynne, who was nominated by Jonathan for all the good she does in the community with her Small Acts of Kindness social enterprise, distributing ‘Warm in Winter‘ bags for free to those who can’t afford to heat their homes. Jonathan tells us that “The bag contains a thermal blanket, gloves, socks, a scarf and a mug with sachets of tea, coffee and hot chocolate and is delivered free to people who are nominated for one”.
In the first year Lynne delivered 60 Warm in Winter bags, in the second that increased to 800 and this year she is on target to deliver more than 2500 to deserving people in Hertfordshire.
After all of Lynne’s hard work to ensure others keep warm and feel loved, we thought she should enjoy some time for herself. We surprised her with a Virgin Experience Days boutique escape for two at the Kings Head Hotel. Situated in the Cotswolds, we hope Lynne enjoys the views and the leisure facilities during her much-deserved break away.
We hope she has a wonderful time!
We also surprised Julie in Durham – you can watch what happened here.
Look out for more random acts of kindness from Virgin Money.
