Metro Bank’s Crawley store will be teaming up with SEND Enterprise to offer students a financial education about banking and how current accounts work on Tuesday April 25th.
SEND Enterprise was set up by the government in 2015 as the national body for careers education in England, supporting schools and colleges to deliver modern, 21st century careers education.
Metro Bank has worked with over 250,000 schoolchildren delivering its own financial education programme, Money Zone.
“As a community bank we recognise the importance of understanding your money and how to look after it and even make it work for you.” explains Nicky Ascenso, Crawley Metro Bank’s Store Manager. “We want everyone to have these basic life skills and are happy to support organisations like SEND to improve the financial knowledge and skills of young people.”
The Crawley Metro Bank store is located at 25 Queens Square, Crawley RH10 1HA. The store is open Monday – Saturday: 8.30am - 6pm. Sunday: 11am - 5pm. Visitors are welcome and the store can open business and personal accounts with and without an appointment, as well as print cards in store for customers to use immediately. Crawley Metro Bank is also part of the Safe Space scheme – the store is available to anyone experiencing, or at risk of domestic abuse, providing the opportunity to safely call a helpline, support service or loved one.
