Thirteen children between the ages of 1 and 17 years who are Early Savers Account Club Members with GBTI have each been rewarded with $5,000.
The incentive is a reward for children randomly selected from our Early Savers Account Club who would have saved $1,000 or more in 2020. This is part of GBTI’s Annual Early Savers Reward Programme as a means of encouraging children to save and grow with the bank.
We know that 2020 was not an easy year. In spite of the challenges, some of our children managed to save and so we wanted to reward them as a means of encouraging them to keep saving.
The winners this year are Shaun Calder, Water Street Branch; Elijah Jones, Regent Street Branch; Traevaun Thomas, Corriverton; Shania Ramnarine, Anna Regina; Serena Sookram, Parika; Sherah Dhaniram, Vreed-En-Hoop; Anika De Freitas, Lethem; Deven Jaggernauth, Providence; Akash Maniram, Diamond; Nicandro Williams, Kingston; Kelly Thomas, Port Kaituma; and Asad Muhammad Chhotay of our Port Mourant Branch.
Winners were notified via direct mail and their accounts have been credited.
GBTI congratulates its 2021 Early Savers winners and all those children and parents who practice a constant saving habit.
