Chorley & District BS has delivered some great news for savers both young and old by increasing a number of its rates.

A rise of 0.35% has been applied to its Child Trust Fund and Foxley Fund accounts, helping them to improve their standing amongst the best accounts available for children.

Meanwhile, an increase of 0.50% to its Silver Saver Postal account helps it to climb the ranks of accounts aimed at the older generation.

While the Santa Saver account welcomes a significant jump of 1.50%, an annual review of the product in November means further assessment of its overall position in the market will be needed at that time.

For its all round goodness, these improvements earn four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
