The winners of the £1,000 Consumer Moneyfacts Survey prize draw, in association with AOL Money and MyMoney24, have spoken of their joy.

Mr R Twigg of Worthing, East Sussex, was one of the lucky winners.

"It felt wonderful to learn I had won", said Mr Twigg. "I've never won anything in a competition or draw before, so knowing I had won out of all those thousands of people felt marvellous!"

Ginny Sellors, a mother of two from Nottingham, another lucky winner of the £1,000 prize draw, initially thought someone was playing a trick on her when she received news of her win.

"I was totally shocked and stunned when I got the call to say I had won," she said. "In fact I was standing in the street talking to a friend at the time and thought she was in on some kind of practical joke!"

Ms Sellors plans to spend her winnings on some home improvements and hopes to go away for a nice weekend sometime in the spring with her family.

"Obviously I will be purchasing a nice new pair of dancing shoes as well!" she declared.

Anne O'Donnell of Doncaster also won £1,000 for providing her feedback on the financial products and institutions that she believes deserve recognition.

Response to this year's survey was overwhelming, with almost 80,000 surveys completed.

Indeed, the volume of completed responses made the Consumer Moneyfacts Survey the largest and most influential annual survey of its kind.

Moneyfacts.co.uk would like to thank all who voted in the 2012 Consumer Moneyfacts Survey.
