At the end of August Zopa became the first UK peer-to-peer platform to lend its billionth pound. We’re very proud of the achievement and it’s something that wouldn’t have been possible without the 200,000 lenders and borrowers who have used Zopa over the last decade.
So as a thank you to all of the peers who got us to our billion-pound moment, we ran a competition asking them what magical moment they would choose if they had a billion pounds.
We had lots of responses, with detailed, imaginative ideas that took us to every continent, to the bottom of the sea and into outer space.
The winning billionaire moments
However, there could only be two winners – one lender and one borrower. After much heated debate among the Zopa team, we whittled it down to a shortlist and today Giles our co-founder and Executive Chairman, called two lucky entrants to tell them they had won.
Borrower Rhys’ billionaire moment is to take his wife and four children to Disneyland Paris as a thank you for all the support they’ve given him through a tough year of illness.
Lender Kenneth is jetting off to Las Vegas to fulfil his billionaire moment – flying over the Grand Canyon while listening to Pink Floyd’s ‘Wish you were here’.
Congratulations to both winners and a big thank you to everyone who entered.
