    They are asking for bank details. You can either do what it says in the letter or ring them to tell them those details. 

    Seems like they either don’t have them or they want to check they have the correct ones incase there’s an award made. It doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve definitely been awarded yet.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    As Poppy mentioned above, they're likely just checking or confirming your details on their records. You can always give them a ring to check, though.

    Hopefully you'll hear more about your award soon :)
