UK, February 2007: Western Union, a leading international provider of money transfer services, today announced an incredible reduction in its prices to the Caribbean. In an amazing double offer, prices now start from only £6.90 for Western Union’s Money in Minutes service**[3][3] and from £4.90 following the extension of its Next Day service to every country in the Caribbean*.[4][4] For customers sending money home to their loved ones, the new pricing offers more choice and convenience, helping families to stay connected wherever they are.

Rajiv Garodia Country Director, Western Union UK, Ireland and the Nordics, said, “We know how important it is for our customers to stay connected to their loved ones, whether as a means of support to a family member back home or simply as a cash gift for an anniversary, birthday or seasonal celebration. With this incredible double offer, we’ve given all our Caribbean customers the choice of using the Next Day service for regular money transfers and Money in Minutes if they need to send money more urgently.”

To celebrate this amazing dual offer, Western Union is carrying out a programme of amazing community events between Friday 16th – Saturday 24th February at several locations in London. Reflecting the ‘It’s Amazing’ theme carried through a national poster and ad campaign, the UK’s No. 1 freestyle dancer and Guinness World Record Holder, Steady, will perform a series of ‘amazing’ dance routines in Brixton and Croydon on Saturday 17th February and Wood Green on Saturday the 24th of February 2007. Other event locations include Brixton on Friday 16th February 2007 and Friday 23rd February. Steady is set to enthrall onlookers with his eclectic break dance routines and stunts and they too will have the opportunity to out-perform Steady with their own amazing dance routines. At all of the community events locations, Caribbean entertainers will enliven the streets of London with their vibrant acts.

Customers sending money to the Caribbean using the Next Day service can use any one of Western Union’s 4000 locations including Travelex, Money Shop, Cash Converters, First Choice, Going Places, Building Societies, Bureaux de Change, newsagents, pharmacies, and other retail outlets.
