" Madness" Says Popstar Suggs If You Don't Pay By Direct Debit
£25,000 prize in draw for all who pay Council Tax by DD!
Popstar Suggs says that with a £25,000 cash prize on offer it would be "madness" not to sign up to a new council tax direct debit payment campaign.
People who sign up to pay their council tax by direct debit before July 15 will be entered into a prize draw and could win themselves £25,000.
The cash prize is being offered by Bacs Payment Schemes Ltd (Bacs), the organisation responsible for direct debit. It has teamed up with Wandsworth Council and some other London boroughs in a drive to increase the use of this easy and convenient payment method.
The public awareness campaign is being fronted by Madness singer Suggs. He was joined at the launch of the new initiative last week by the chairman of Wandsworth's corporate resources scrutiny committee Cllr Vanessa Graham.
Cllr Graham said:
"And anyone who signs up before July 15 could be in with a chance of winning a £25,000 cash prize. Of course all our residents who have already opted for direct debit will be automatically entered into this prize draw so they won't miss out on the chance to win this fabulous prize."
People who want to sign up to pay their council tax by direct debit can use the council's fully automated 24 hour helpline by calling 020 8871 7799. Alternatively visit www.wandsworth.gov.uk/counciltax, fill in a direct debit instruction form or contact your bank or building society.
