Skipton’s Head of Products, Kris Brewster, said: “Christmas is a wonderful time, but it can also be a stressful one, especially for people with families who face the worry of paying for the growing cost of their festivities.
“With statistics suggesting that personal debt spirals at this time of year as a result, we think it’s important to offer people an alternative.
“By putting away what they can spare on a monthly basis, they can not only plan for a worry-free Christmas, but the interest they earn will help to add a little extra sparkle!”
