Galmpton winners for Post Office Money savings draw

We were thrilled to hear just before Christmas that not one but two of our lovely customers were the lucky recipients of £2,500 cash and a £100 One4all Gift Card in the Post Office Money monthly savings draw.

The Post Office Money monthly savings draw invites new and existing customers to deposit at least £1,000 into their Post Office Money savings account between 17 September 2018 and 31 March 2019, to be in with the chance of winning £10,000 plus 100s of other prizes.

Each month brings more chances to win. For more information, visit the official Post Office Money Savings Prize Draw page.

As a result of two of our customers winning prizes, Post Office Money also sent us a hamper (seen here with Kay) which we will be raffling off in the near future. To be in with a chance of winning, keep an eye out in store or on our website.
