Winner found in our 190th Anniversary competition!

A lucky winner has been found in the quest to find the local baby born closest to Christmas as part of our 190th Anniversary celebrations!

Anna and Matt Hancock, who live just down the road from our head office in Cheadle, won a Young Saver Plan for their baby Ethan, who was born on Christmas Eve at 01.45.

As the prize for winning the competition, we will pay £7.50 every month into the plan until Ethan reaches 18, meaning he could be receiving a plan worth over £1,600 on his 18th birthday. In addition, we will also aim to add annual bonuses to the plan if our investments perform well, meaning the plan could grow even further!

Anna said:

“We heard about Shepherds Friendly’s competition on Facebook, and thought we would enter despite thinking we would never win! We were always planning to save for Ethan’s future as we know how important saving for your child is, and the fact that we can add to the plan each month to make it grow makes it even better!

“Whatever Ethan wishes to do when he turns 18, whether it is going to university or saving for a first home deposit, the Young Saver Plan will certainly help him in achieving his dreams!”

The Young Saver Plan is a tax-efficient child savings plan, starting from just £7.50 a month, that lets family members save for a child they love. It is invested in stocks and shares with the aim of providing long-term growth on the child’s savings, and there is no tax payable on the growth of the plan.
