Random Act of Kindness in River Terminal
A random act of kindness was all it took to brighten up the morning commute for van-loads of travellers in the River Terminal on Wednesday.
Staff from Scotiabank’s Wildey branch took to the terminal bright and early to pay the way for scores of commuters heading all across Barbados. The surprise was part of Scotiabank’s Random Acts of Kindness, as the bank celebrates its 60th anniversary in Barbados. Passengers on the ZR vans cheered and high-fived the Scotiabank staffers on realising what was happening.
Lakeisha White, head of the Wildey branch’s employee action team which spearheaded the activities, said staff members got just as much pleasure of out of it as did the delighted commuters.
“It was so much fun just seeing the surprise on people’s faces. It just goes to show that sometimes a small act of kindness means a lot and people really appreciated it.”
The celebration continued later in the day at the branch as customers got to recreate a bit of their childhood with a chance to pull from a ‘lucky dip‘ of prizes and gifts.
Scotiabank senior marketing manager Lisa Cole said that the Random Acts of Kindness was Scotiabank’s way of sharing the celebration of their anniversary with the community.
“Our customers and the community are the reasons for our success and longevity in Barbados. It’s important to us that we show them in large ways and small, how much their support means to us and to include them in our celebration.”
