Hays Chair Dame Irene Hays (pictured with Lynne) said the company decided to pay two people’s bills as a celebration of last month’s high sales, with 1,287 retail staff achieving their August targets.

Dame Irene said: “August had been such an exceptional month so the decision had been made to surprise two people, not just one.”

Lynne who has been in the legal team for Hays Travel for 18 months, said: “I burst into tears when my name was announced.

“It was lovely to see all my colleague’s reaction as well, they are all so happy for me.”

Sandra (pictured with Chief Operating Officer Jonathon Woodall-Johnston) said: “I am absolutely overwhelmed.

“Of the 40 years I have worked in travel this is the biggest prize I have ever won.

“My husband can’t complain about me putting the heating on now!”

The celebrate August’s high sales, all retail staff who achieved their target will share an additional payment of nearly £300,000 for the month.
