A newlywed couple had a nice surprise on their CrossCountry train journey recently on their way to their staycation honeymoon.
The couple were on their way to Cornwall when they were surprised on the train by CrossCountry’s Managing Director, Tom Joyner.
Tom met the couple on their train journey at Derby and presented them with a complimentary bottle of champagne.
Victoria and Brett Seithel from Sheffield, worked throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, Brett a Physician Associate and Victoria for a Christian charity.
Tom said, “It’s great to give back to a couple who have been vital during these trying times. We are lucky to operate across some of most beautiful parts of the country from Aberdeen to Penzance. Brett and Victoria have started a new chapter in their lives despite the pandemic and we wish them all the best travelling in style to their honeymoon. Going by train will mean the couple can relax after a busy few months and hopefully the champagne helped too.”
Victoria said, “This has been so exciting, I didn’t expect to get a reply when I emailed Tom back in July. Before Covid, I would regularly travel with CrossCountry and have nothing but praise for the staff. We are really looking forward to our first holiday together as a married couple and want to thank Tom and the team for the lovely surprise.”
