Money Moments Winner – Michala BentonNovember 17, 2017 11:16 am
When Michala Benton won her case for a mis-sold packaged bank account from Lloyds Bank she knew exactly what she wanted to do – to give her disabled daughter Isabella a special birthday party and take her and her three sisters away on holiday.
Said Michala: “Isabella suffers with complex epilepsy where she has at least 3 seizures a night, she requires 24/7 care and has severe global development delay. We used the money to give Isabella a wonderful birthday and then took her and her sisters Amie, Daisy and Molly for a week’s holiday in Marmaris, Turkey.
Quality time“It was lovely – so nice to spend some quality time with all the family,” she said.
Michala had no idea whether or not she had been mis-sold her Lloyds packaged bank account, but her claim via Churchill Sloan found she had been mis-sold and Lloyds paid her £2,019.03 compensation.
