Mhairi not only manages the Savings Bank’s Museum, including personally hosting guided tours for visitors, but speaks regularly in public forums about Henry Duncan, the founder of TSB.
Mhairi, from Ruthwell, Dumfrieshire, was very moved to discover that she has been nominated for recognition by her colleagues and truly buys into the concept of “ordinary people doing extraordinary things”.
“You just do your job, really,” she told us ahead of the Pride of Britain Awards night, “so, it’s nice to realise that people notice. It means a lot to me.”
She has a huge passion for both the Museum and for the subject of Henry Duncan. So much so that when asked who her personal inspiration and source of pride is, she answers without hesitation: “I know it sounds corny, but I would have to say Henry Duncan”.
“This event is just another example of what makes TSB so special,” she said. “We really do believe that we are a bit different.”
Mhairi had brought her teenage daughter Leigh-Anne down to London for the event, and the duo cut short our interview to head off for last-minute shoe-shopping in London’s West End ahead of the awards.
We will be posting interviews, news, photos and videos on all of our social media channels before, during and after the awards.
