Third of UK workers dip into savings to fund Christmas

34% of British workers plan on tapping into their savings in order to afford the holiday season.

That is according to new research from Sodexo Benefits and Rewards Services. The company commissioned OnePoll to carry out the survey, who polled over 1,000 people on how they would afford increased bills, food and Christmas gifts. A third stated that they would rather tap into their savings than fund the holidays through their wages or short-term savings.
