Sponsorship: Damien’s nine peak Scottish challenge in support of British veterans

Descent path

A PaydayUK employee is aiming to climb nine Scottish mountains in one day to raise money for soldiers suffering from mental health conditions developed during their service.

Damien Jones, who works in PaydayUK’s risk department, plans to scale four mountains, including Ben Nevis, and then cycle 65 miles before climbing a further five, including Cairn Gorm.

Every one of the nine is more than 4,000 feet tall and Damien is attempting to achieve all this in under 24 hours.

A message to PaydayUK customers experiencing difficulties with loan repayments due to IT problems at Natwest, Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and Ulster Bank

PaydayUK is aware that NatWest, RBS and Ulster Bank are having difficulty crediting funds to some accounts and this may be causing some PaydayUK customers difficulty in making payments against their loans.

As a fair and responsible lender PaydayUK would like to let you know how it’s handling this situation and what’s going to happen next.

If you have been affected by this problem and are struggling to repay your loan as a result then:

  • PaydayUK will not charge any default charges or fees.
  • PaydayUK will continue to attempt to collect the payment from the account but, because funds are collected via debit card, customers will not be charged for any failed payment attempts made.
  • Providing accounts are cleared by the end of this month PaydayUK will not report any negative information on affected account performance to credit reference bureaux.

The advert sees the Commander flying his trusty Lancaster Bomber with faithful crewmembers Sandra and Ginger when Sandra receives a distress call over the radio.

A lady’s car has broken down and she needs it repaired quickly. Unfortunately it has come at a really bad time for her as she is running a bit short this month and can’t afford the bill until her next payday
