Matt Simmons this makes you some sorta millionaire doesn't it?

It was a nice idea. Having £40 in vouchers was great but when you use it for a £25 tshirt and are left with £15 there’s nothing else you can get with them. If you could top it up with the extra cash it would be much better.

If we already done it and qualified last year do we need to do it again?
