Marking the second draw of its monthly Savers Prize Draw, Halifax has given savers across Merseyside a great boost for the New Year as it made 27 savers 7,200 better off. In total, 61 Merseyside savers have won prizes in the two Halifax draws so far, with 12,400 coming in to the region in prizes.

With over 560,000 registrations, the unique Halifax Savers Prize Draw has grown even further in popularity with UK savers in January. The great attraction of the draw derives from the fact that savers can choose from a range of products that suit their varying savings needs, earn the interest associated with that account, as well as registering for the big draw. It is not a replacement for earning interest, it is a great bonus: rewarding the commitment to saving.

The three big January winners came from across the UK: South Yorkshire, West Midlands and Norfolk.
The luckiest counties, seeing the greatest number of prize winners were: Lancashire (79), West Yorkshire (60), London (59), Essex (48) and Surrey (43).
Counties reaping the highest monetary rewards were: West Midlands (106,400) South Yorkshire (106,000), Norfolk (102,200), Lancashire (10,600) London (9,500) and West Yorkshire (9,600).

David Nicholson, Group Director, Halifax Community Bank, said: "Halifax branch colleagues in Merseyside are very excited to see local savers continue their winning streak in the Savers Prize Draw. They are looking forward to welcoming our winners into branches to claim their prizes, very happy Im sure to have another opportunity to give customers that something extra. It will be a great boost for many to get the news at the start of the New Year".

Letters are currently being sent to winners via recorded post.
