THE Christmas spirit could be heard loud and clear at the head office of AXA Wealth on Tuesday, December 18.

It was all because 25 pupils from South View Infant School, in Basingstoke, sang Christmas carols in the reception area of the office in Winterthur Way, Basingstoke.

This was the third consecutive year that children from the school have visited the pensions and investment company to spread a little festive cheer to AXA Wealth employees.

And in return, as a sign of gratitude from AXA Wealth, each of the children received a goody bag including home-made cookies.
