    If you need the cash, £2200 at todays prices, sell them.

    you got your letter yesterday as well :D :D
    they often do a non commision transfer but that will be at ok rather than a good rate
    if your desperate then cash in
    but i suggest you take your time and pick a time you will get a better rate or a better deal
    i have 224 shares but not worth moving them on at the min :eek:

    ok looks like option "C" is the 0.15% option to sell :D
    but to be honest they only tend to buy at the bottom off the market when they can get shares cheap unless your desperate for the money i would hang in in
    over the last 53 weeks they have been 338 or very nearly a quarter higher
    over todays average off 273
