Metro Bank colleagues from the Clapham Junction store have delivered Money Zone – financial education workshops – to six members of Share Community. The aim of the complimentary workshops is to raise financial awareness in students and understanding.
Share Community works with adults who need extra help and support to realise their dreams and aspirations. They are a centre for learning and wellbeing for adults with learning disabilities, autism, physical disabilities, mental health and other support needs. Their aim is to help people live happier, healthier, and more independent lives, and make their own choices.
Money Zone is a series of financial education lessons that Metro Bank offers - either virtually or in store. Clapham Junction Metro Bank Assistant Store Manager, Iris Nerguti organised the session which gave the students a behind the scenes look at the Bank including a visit to the vault and the chance to try the coin counting Magic Money Machine. Metro Bank has delivered its Money Zone programme to over 250,000 students.
“We are really pleased that we were able to deliver this Money Zone workshop, the Share Community members were very engaged and it was a fantastic opportunity to continue to build our relationship with the local community,” explains Clapham Junction Metro Bank’s Store Manager Maria Roussi. ‘’We are proud of our Money Zone programme and the difference it makes in giving people a good grounding in their financial education.’’
