Coventry BS is linking up with the Royal British Legion to boost the poppy appeal again this year by donating 0.05% of balances held in its 18 month Poppy Bond.

The account pays 3.55% yearly (3.49% monthly) on a minimum investment of £1 to 30 April 2013 and can be operated by phone or online

No earlier access is allowed but additions can be made whilst the issue remains open or for seven days after the initial deposit, whichever is longer.

This offer is a market leader in the very limited 18 month sector and should prove popular with those looking to help a good cause as well as receive high returns.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
