Making my daughter's day

Sue Rainer, 58 Newcastle

When my daughter told me she was engaged I was overjoyed. More than anything I wanted to be able to help with her big day. Thankfully, with the help of Portafina and their great advice, I was able to use some tax free cash from my pension to make my daughter’s wedding extra special. I found I even had enough to help her put down a deposit on their first home!
