Runners from the world of finance have raised big bucks as they smashed the Vitality 10,000 run!
Nearly £1,000 will now go to the frontline of financial education bringing money lessons to some of the UKs poorest areas.
Our six strong team of financial service consultants, academics, regulators and policy advisors put months of hard work into their training and all finished the 10k challenge, in heat well above the seasonal average.
We know that currently just 4 in 10 young people receive any form of money lessons at school. 200,000 young people have benefited from MyBnk’s expert-led programmes since 2007.
Funds will support us to:
- Build positive money habits and behaviours with 7-11 year-olds through Money Twist Primary.
- Empower 11-18 year-olds with new knowledge to prevent money problems with Money Twist Secondary, Sporty and UniDosh – and give real-life enterprise challenges for 11-25 year-olds through Enterprise-in-a-Box and Business Battle.
- Support vulnerable young adults aged 16-25 transition to independent living with Money Works and The Money House.
