Guildford Metro Bank colleagues have delivered Money Zone – financial education workshops – to over 20 pupils from Tillingbourne 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.
