Farepak cheques 'are in the post'

Thousands of people lost money as a result of the Farepak collapse
Administrators acting for the collapsed Christmas hamper firm Farepak have started sending out cheques.

It follows legal arguments after a trust fund was set up shortly before the company went into administration.

It was found the trust had not been set up properly and a court was asked to determine whether the trust existed and, if so, who should get the money.

The cheques are being sent out by the administrators to those whose trust claims have been agreed by the court.

'Claims accepted'

Swindon-based Farepak collapsed in October 2006, leaving more than 100,000 people out of pocket.

So far 6,000 of them, both customers and agents, have had their claims that they are owed money accepted by the courts.

A spokesman for the administrators said the cheques were not dividend payments and that the court's ruling would not affect the estimated dividend of 5p in the £1.

Work is still continuing to secure further money for the benefit of all creditors.

Farepak became a household name across the country when it collapsed, leaving the average customer - often from low-income families - some £400 out of pocket, with some losing more than £2,000.

As well as saving for Christmas food hampers, many people had paid for vouchers they had planned to cash in for presents at high street shops.

Auditor figures showed that 122,000 customers and agents put in claims for about £38m, but they have been told to expect just 5% of what they are owed.
