FIVE Rugby children won cash to open their own savings account at Hinckley & Rugby Building Society in a competition marking 150 years since the founding of the Rugby Provident Building Society.

Rugby Mayor Gwen Hotten judged the entries to the colouring competition, which was held in conjunction with the Advertiser.

They were split into two age groups, and visited the branch in North Street to present the prizes to the winners.

The first place prizes – with £150 to kick off a new Saver 4 Ten Children’s Saver Account – were won by four-year-old Jack Phillips and Kisha Morris, ten.

The second place prizes – of £50 each in a new savings account – were won by sisters Hannah (9) and Katie (6) Richards.

There was also a third prize of £25 which went to Amelia Hancock, who is six.

All the children live in Rugby.

Cllr Hotten said: “I was very pleased to help although it was a difficult job to choose the winners because all the entries were so nicely done.

“It has been nice to meet the winners and see how much they have enjoyed achieving.”
