Prize Draw - Win £250 in John Lewis gift vouchers

If you choose to have your dividends paid directly into your bank or building society account, and instruct the change between Tuesday 12 November 2019 and the closing date of 9 a.m. on Friday 17 January 2020, you will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win one of three £250 John Lewis vouchers.

Terms and conditions apply and by entering the prize draw, you agree to comply with these terms and conditions. To view the terms and conditions, and for details on how to opt out of the Prize Draw, click here.

Please note:
In most cases, we are unable to set mandated dividend payments to anyone other than the shareholder themselves. There are only a few exceptional circumstances when we will be able to do this; such as when the shareholder is deceased, where there is a Court of Protection Order, or when another type of Order is in place.

For a dividend payment made to a UK bank or building society account, no fee is chargeable. A fee is deducted for any payment to an overseas account. Please read below for further information.​​
