Home where the heart is for £500 winner Faye

The sale of her mum’s property via The Nottingham led to a £500 Christmas cash boost for Louth mum-of-one Faye Needham - and her delighted son Sam (18) who is set to pocket half of the festive funds!

Mrs Needham landed the prize simply for taking out a home insurance quote with us and being automatically entered into the competition, which runs until 24 December in our branches across ten counties and online.

Participating came about when selling her mum’s house via our estate agency arm, Nottingham Estate Agency. As well as successfully accepting an offer within days of it going on the market both her and her mother decided to take out home insurance quotes.

Mrs Needham takes up the story: “I was aware of the competition because the Louth branch team are really friendly and professional and they had brought it to my attention.

“The primary aim for my mum and I was, particularly as she is in the process of moving house, to review our home insurance premiums and that’s why we took out quotes.

“Of course you never expect to win - I’ve barely won anything in my life - but with mum having the costs of moving it did fleetingly cross my mind that the money would come in very handy if we did!

“Lo and behold, we ended up being drawn out of the hat and it’s a fantastic boost just before Christmas. We have had a very tough couple of years as a family so this will definitely help us enjoy the festive period.

“Sam has his sights set on an iPad so I’ve already told him he can have half of the money to put towards one. He’s very happy with that indeed.

“It’s great that The Nottingham is giving away such great prizes simply for taking a no obligation quote so I would urge people to prioritise ensuring that their properties are properly protected - because they never know, they might hit lucky too!”

The home insurance ‘win £500’ competition runs until 24 December and anyone who takes out a quote in branch or at thenottingham.com will be in with a chance of winning. In total there are 16 prizes, totalling £8,000, being given away.
