Virgin Limited Edition: #ReachOut over the holidays

The countdown to the holidays has officially started and we’ve actually been feeling quite festive for some time now whilst making our 2019 Christmas video.

Take a peek here…

The story behind this year’s Christmas message came about from our team in London who thought one of the most important things about the holidays is to reach out to people and show you care. For us, the holidays are all about celebrating with friends and family, but we know that it can also be a very lonely time for those who don't have anyone around.

While new technology and social media can be a great way for us to connect with people around the world, it can also be easy to forget to pick up the phone and simply call an elderly relative or even just say hello in person to a neighbour.

A recent statistic from Age UK mentioned that over 225,000 older people often go a week without speaking to anyone, and half a million older people are expecting to feel lonely this Christmas.

That’s why this December, we’re supporting our friends at Age UK and spreading the message (and some festive cheer) to encourage as many people as possible to reach out to someone over the holidays.

Show your support this Christmas by donating to Age UK.

We’d also like to give a special thanks to some of our amazing team members at each of our properties for helping to make this video for us, see if you recognise any of them:
  • Mohammed Ait Belhaj, Master Tea maker at Kasbah Tamadot
  • Naomi Wardle, Guest Services Manager at The Lodge
  • Rochelle George, Guest host on Necker Island
  • Camilla Llompart Garcia, Housekeeper at Son Bunyola
  • Duncan Lenjirr, Head Guide at Mahali Mzuri
  • Dustin Osborne, Winemaker at Mont Rochelle
  • Erick Mzimba, Ranger at Ulusaba
