Inspirational youngsters to win £100 savings prizes

Seven inspirational youngsters will soon receive a savings boost from the Nottingham Building Society (known as The Nottingham) in recognition of being outstanding role models.

Between now and 28 August The Nottingham wants to hear stories of children up to the age of 18 who live in areas close to its building society branches and have demonstrated remarkable courage, outstanding achievement or have overcome extremely difficult challenges or situations.

A deserving winner from each of the Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, South Yorkshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire regions will be randomly chosen and he or she will receive £100* to invest in a Robin Hood Young Saver Account to set them on the way to saving for a brighter future. They will also land one of the society’s ever popular Robin Hood money boxes.

The Nottingham’s Chief Operating Officer Simon Taylor said: “There are lots of really deserving young people across our communities demonstrating that they are inspirational role models or who have the courage to overcome very challenging odds on a daily basis, and as a mutual building society it very much fits within our ethos to recognise those individuals.

“Our Robin Hood Young Saver Account is really popular because it offers a fantastic rate and also, of course, the money boxes which young people absolutely love. So we thought what better way to say how proud we are of many of the youngsters across our towns and cities than to give them £100 and set them on the way to a brighter financial future and one day being able to invest what they have saved into something they truly deserve.”
