School wins £500 towards musical instruments from 12 Days of Christmas Campaign

Bradford & Bingley International (BBI), donated £500 to St Thomas’ Church of England School for the purchase of musical instruments following the school’s success in BBI’s 12 Days of Christmas draw.
BBI’s Community Affairs Manager, George Campbell, added “The 12 Days of Christmas has been a fun event for all the staff here at BBI and has allowed us to help charities and the local community where they need it most. It was also very pleasing to present the cheque to St Thomas’ Church of England School in person and meet the children that will benefit from this donation.”

The ’12 Days of Christmas’ event was part of BBI’s ‘me&my community spirit’, the events aim was to make the wishes come true for Isle of Man charities. Charities were invited to ‘send a letter to Santa’ to let him know their Christmas wishes, which ranged from new equipment and extra man power to extra cash. All letters were then entered into a draw with the lucky winners having their wishes granted.
