Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.

I am not licensed to give investment advice, but my recommendations scarcely qualify as such! For safety i would suggest National Savings products, even Premium Bonds if you feel like a gamble, otherwise Building Society or bank deposit accounts.

Many National Savings products are tax free and, of course, from the 16/17 tax year, the first 1000 quid of interest is also tax free to basic rate tax payers (500 if you are on the higher rate).

I do hope that I have shown you a safe way forward.
