The telecoms provider surprised 20 customers inside NWC by paying a portion of their bills and bringing the Christmas cheer with free Christmas cupcakes and credit.

Customers inside the National Water Commission (NWC) office on Marescaux Road, Kingston, received a pleasant and well-timed surprise when Digicel popped up in a surprise gesture, offering to help pay their bills recently.

In addition to having their bills subsidised, Digicel also delivered some Christmas cheer to the customers with free Christmas cupcakes and credit for all.

Grateful for the assistance, customer Jennifer Harmon said that Digicel's surprise has helped her to save something for this Christmas. "I feel very good that Digicel came and did this because this will definitely help me put something back in my pocket in this holiday season," Harmon said.

Customer Lilleth Davy was also delighted to have Digicel pay part of her bill. "I am so happy," Davy said. "I was only here to pay part of my bill and then this. I feel very happy right now."

Kim Chin, frontline supervisor at the NWC on Marescaux Road was pleased to hear the responses of several customers, saying Digicel "really made a difference for many people. I really admire the spirit of the Digicel team. They came and they really just helped to make the day of so many people," Chin added.

Senior communications manager at Digicel, Shelly-Ann Harris, spoke about the significance of the unexpected gesture. "Though Christmas is one of the most wonderful times of the year, it can also be one of the most stressful. The Digicel family understands the pressures facing our customers and as such, we want to help. Giving our customers a helping hand with the bills is just one way in which we are happy to be able to give back to our customers," Harris said.

In a similar move, Digicel also paid the bill for customers purchasing gas at the Gore Service Station in Constant Spring, emphasising the brand's holiday promise to 'Brighten Someone's Christmas'.
