THE clock is ticking for Hillingdon residents, who have just two weeks left to scoop £25,000 as part of a council tax promotion run by Bacs Payment Schemes, the not-for-profit organisation behind direct debit.

Hillingdon, along with 15 other London boroughs, has teamed up with Bacs to offer residents a chance to win the life-changing prize, simply by paying their council tax by direct debit.

To be in with a chance of winning, Hillingdon residents simply need to switch to pay their council tax by direct debit before 5pm on July 11.

They can simply return a completed DD instruction form by post, sign up to DD online at [], or call 0300 123 1384 to arrange over the phone.

Residents who already pay their council tax by direct debit will automatically be entered into the prize draw.

Hillingdon Council is one of 16 London boroughs taking part in the prize draw promotion.

Last year’s £25,000 prize was won by North Kensington resident Salvatore Rullo. This year’s winner will be drawn on July 17.
