Nadia showing Republic Bank what she’ll do with $5,200

A home improvement project is on the cards for longstanding Republic Bank customer, Ms. Nadia Brathwaite, who is ringing in 2019 by showing exactly what she’ll do with $5,200.

The winner of the “What would you do with $5,200?” Social Media promotion was presented with her prize at Republic Bank’s Broad Street Branch, by Brian Charles, Manager of Customer Care.

The deserving winner who started her first account with the former Barbados National Bank when she was just 16 years old, showed she was also thoughtful and caring declaring that she would first share a chunk of the winnings with her sister “who really needed it ”. Then after paying some important bills, the majority of the funds would go towards upgrading her home with new floor tiles.

Noting she was both thankful and surprised, Brathwaite said the $5,200 could not have come at a more opportune time.

“I’m not a lucky person, this is actually my first time winning something. So it came as a shock, all I wanted to do was to get into the top five. It was a welcome surprise and it came with perfect timing, especially family wise.”

Customers participating in the promotion which ran during November last year, to commemorate the 2nd anniversary of the Bank’s entry to social media were required to Like, Follow and Share the Republic Bank Facebook page, commenting on what they would do if they were given $5,200.00. The winner was selected by random draw after the top five posts with the most likes were identified.
