| The luck of the Londoner: More Savers win in Halifax Prize Draw
Tuesday 21 February, 2012
London savers have continued their lucky streak in the Halifax Savers Prize Draw as another 59 entrants picked up prizes of £100 and £1000 in January. In total, there have been 115 London winners in the two draws, held in December and January, with £15,600 in prizes heading to the capital.
With over 560,000 registrations, the unique Halifax Savers Prize Draw has grown even further in popularity with UK savers in January. The great attraction of the draw derives from the fact that savers can choose from a range of products that suit their varying savings needs, earn the interest associated with that account, as well as registering for the big draw. It is not a replacement for earning interest, it is a great bonus: rewarding the commitment to saving.
The three big January winners came from across the UK: South Yorkshire, West Midlands and Norfolk.
The luckiest counties, seeing the greatest number of prize winners were: Lancashire (79), West Yorkshire (60), London (59), Essex (48) and Surrey (43).
Counties reaping the highest monetary rewards were: West Midlands (£106,400) South Yorkshire (£106,000), Norfolk (£102,200), Lancashire (£10,600) London (£9,500) and West Yorkshire (£9,600).
David Nicholson, Group Director, Halifax Community Bank, said: Halifax branch colleagues in London are very excited to see local savers continue their winning streak in the Savers Prize Draw. They are looking forward to welcoming our winners into branches to claim their prizes, very happy Im sure to have another opportunity to give customers that something extra. It will be a great boost for many to get the news at the start of the New Year".
