STAFF at the Yorkshire Building Society in High Street, Ealing, have received an early Christmas gift, with an extra day off on Christmas Eve. 

They will have a five-day break before returning to work on Tuesday, December 29.

Customers will need to plan ahead if they need to contact the society around this time.

The society is recognising the efforts of its key workers who kept branches open throughout the pandemic.

Mike Regnier, Chief Executive, said: “We wanted to do something that recognised the extraordinary year that all our colleagues have been through.”

The society has not furloughed any staff this year.
