A Virgin star has shared her story on meeting Richard Branson and ending up on a trip of a lifetime to Jamaica with the Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship.
Helen Forster was chosen as Virgin Money's star of the year by colleagues, after personifying the company's vision of Everyone's Better Off and going above and beyond the call of duty.
She headed to the Virgin Stars of the Year party at Holly and Sam Branson's Oxfordshire home, where Richard Branson showed off his dance moves and Virgin Money Chief Executive Jayne-Anne Gadhia presented her award.
Helen told the Swindon Advertiser: "It’s a real honour to win this award, and meeting Sir Richard was the icing on the cake.
"I was a little nervous beforehand, but actually I had a great time and he really made me feel at ease. I got to meet other winners from across Virgin and then to be chosen to attend the Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship in Jamaica was a huge surprise."
Congratulations to Helen and all of the other Virgin Stars of the Year.
