Gladstone Brookes | Money Memories 5 - THE WINNER

Money Memories 5 – THE WINNER


Jeremy Newell has been paraplegic from birth and the severity of his disability has meant he hasn’t been able to have a holiday for 25 years – until now.

After making claims against three credit cards – two from Lloyds and one from Morgan Stanley – Jeremy ended up with £2,357.88 in compensation which helped him to fly away for a week in the sun on Gran Canaria.

Brilliant

“It was brilliant,” said Jeremy. “I’ve never been able to get away on holiday because I have to have two carers to look after me, but this payout helped me to take them both for a week-long holiday of a lifetime in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria.

“It was a beautiful resort which had been recommended because it is nice and flat and suited my wheelchair. I thought I would never have a holiday again because there’s no way I could have afforded to do it.”

Claims deadline

Jeremy made his claims after seeing a Gladstone Brookes TV advert and deciding he should check once and for all if he was owed anything for mis-sold PPI before the claims deadline in 2019.

He said: “I had no idea whether I was owed anything or not because it was so long ago when I signed up for the agreements, but I wanted to make sure before the claims deadline kicked in.

Service

“The service from Gladstone Brookes was excellent and after I thought I would tell everyone my money memories because it truly was the holiday of a lifetime.

“I had no idea that I would win out of all those entries and was amazed when my name was picked out. It’s a nice little bonus just before Christmas.”

“I had no idea whether I was owed anything or not because it was so long ago when I signed up for the agreements, but I wanted to make sure before the claims deadline kicked in.”
