A group of former Thomas Cook employees hope to give something back to their customers by hosting an open day to help those who lost a holiday.
Jackie Sutherland and her team on Perth’s High Street were among the thousands of staff members who lost their jobs on Monday September 23 when the travel company ceased trading.
The branch manager, who worked with the company for 22 years, was left devastated for not only herself and her staff members but also her loyal customer base who lost money and dream bookings when Thomas Cook folded.
Jackie hopes that she and her team can say one last thank you to those customers by holding an open day in Perth where they will attempt to help anyone who lost their holidays.
With customers who lost bookings able to start their claims process through the Civil Aviation Authority from Monday October 7, Jackie and her staff hope their open day will offer help with the “daunting and confusing process”.
Willows Coffee Shop on St John’s Place has offered to host the event, which will take place on Thursday from 2 to 6pm.
