I hope you are looking forward to Christmas. It’s a great time of year to spend with friends, family and the local community – and of course receiving presents!
But what has this got to do with TSB I hear you say? Well next week, in 20 of our branches*, we’ll be inviting local people to come in and nominate their local unsung heroes – people who deservean extra special ‘thank you’.
Agift tag for the nominated person can be hung on our TSB ‘Giftmas’ tree, a blue Christmas tree in the branch. Each local hero then is in with a chance to win a special gift of a Red Letter Day experience. Once all the nominations have been received, the local TSB bank manager will randomly pick and reveal the winner.
Why are we doing this?
Our research shows that the average person says thanks 23 times a day, but six-out-of-10 do so fewer than 11 times a day as a result of their busy lives or simply forgetting.
What our research also shows is that people think Christmas is an ideal time of year to thank someone in their local community. Our TSB Giftmas trees are therefore an ideal way for people to do just this. We want to give some neighbourly support to the local communities we’re based in and give people the opportunity to thank those around them.
So, if you’re local to one of our 20 participating TSB branches, come in, say hi and nominate a local hero to be in with a chance of winning a gift. We very much like the idea of the TSB Giftmas tree and we hope you do too!
We would also love to hear from you and see your pictures on social media; Tweet us at @TSB using #TSBgiftmas.
