THERE have been hundreds of winners in Worcestershire who have scooped a share of £341,000 in Premium Bonds prize draws.

There were 341 winners in Hereford and Worcester who all scooped £1,000 in the draw.

For one lucky winner, they had bought £506 worth of bonds back in October 1987 while eight lucky winners only bought their bonds in December 2023.

Jill Waters, NS&I retail director, said: “Premium Bonds are a fun way to start saving - customers are in with the chance of winning any one of our more than 4.9 million prizes.

"People up and down the country can start their Premium Bonds journey with an initial investment of just £25.”

Premium Bonds is an investment product issued by National Savings & Investments.

Unlike other investments, where investors earn interest or a regular dividend income, bonds are entered into a monthly prize draw where people can win between £25 and £1m.
