Cooking with gas… Felicity bags £500

A state-of-the-art oven is on the menu for Felicity Davie and her family after she scooped £500 in our recent home insurance quote competition.

The Buxton mum-of-two, who is expecting her third child within the next few weeks, had put a much-needed cooker on hold as she prioritised paying off household debts.

However, she will soon be cooking delicious family meals on a brand new appliance after picking up a £500 cheque in-branch - simply for taking a no obligation home insurance quote as part of a competition the society ran throughout June.

Felicity, whose sons Charlie and Archie both have Robin Hood Young Saver accounts and who herself has a savings account with us, was delighted to have landed the cash.

The 30-year-old said: “My mum lives in Matlock and she opened the savings accounts for the boys at the branch there and then recommended I got one too. At the time, late last year, the Buxton branch was new to the high street but I really welcomed it because nothing beats talking about your finances face-to-face and the team there are really friendly, professional and knowledgeable.

“I recently came in to transact on an account and the staff began talking to me about home insurance. I went away and thought about it and when I returned to chat about it again the competition was up and running.

“I entered it but to be honest completely forgot about it, so it was a shock - a lovely one - when I got the call to say I had won the money. Earlier that same week I had won a competition to have a photo-shoot with my baby ‘bump’ which was great but I have to say this beats that hands down!

“We’ve needed a new oven for quite some time but I felt it was more important to pay off some household debts. I’m really proud and happy we’ve been able to chip away at them and the bonus now is that, thanks to The Nottingham, I will soon be able to cook nice meals for the family on a new cooker and there should be some money left over to save too.”
