Aylesbury Metro Bank colleagues have delivered Money Zone – financial education workshops – to 90 pupils from Turnfurlong Junior School. The aim of the complimentary workshops is to raise financial awareness in students from a young age.

Money Zone is a series of financial education lessons that Metro Bank offers to children - either virtually or in store. Money Zone comprises of four sessions - budgeting, saving, banking and the last session which takes place in store gave the students a behind the scenes look at the Bank including a visit to the vault and the chance to try the Magic Money Machine. Metro Bank has delivered its Money Zone programme to over 250,000 children in 2,900 schools.


Aylesbury Metro Bank’s Customer Service Representative Andy Lane and Assistant Store Manager Vanancy Selvakumar delivered the key Money Zone sessions to the pupils which ended with an hour long tour of the Bank to discuss what they had learned during their lessons as well as personal goody bags and certificate for all the kids. Andy and Vanancy had really positive feedback from all the teachers and kids and they loved it so much. 


“Andy and I had the pleasure of visiting Turnfurlong Junior School to host Money Zone for the kids. It was such an amazing experience. Andy was incredible with the sessions and ensured he kept all the kids engaged throughout the sessions. The kids loved it so much and can’t wait for session two,” explains Aylesbury Metro Bank’s Assistant Store Manager Vanancy Selvakumar. “Learning how to manage your money, budget and save are fundamental life skills that everyone needs to learn.
