PRIMARY school pupils will develop a good relationship with money through the expansion of a financial education programme.

Schools across Barrow, Dalton and Ulverston will receive visits from the team behind JF Hornby Money Club throughout April and May.

JF Hornby & Co joined forces with the Furness Education and Skills Partnership (FESP) last year to deliver the sessions in schools across Furness.

Managing Director Paul Hornby said: “Our aim is for children to have a positive relationship with money from an early age – and that means starting the conversation as soon as possible.

“We started running these sessions last year with great success and feedback and I’m pleased we are back again with an expanded delivery programme and some exciting money club merchandise to get pupils engaged and interested in finance.

“We launched the J F Hornby Money Club, something that pupils will be encouraged to join in our upcoming sessions. The children will agree to a savings pledge and receive a goodie bag. We make it fun and engaging.”

The pledge will see children promise to: be careful with money, save what they can and to never give their sensitive information to anyone.

The sessions, part of the Build My Skills initiative aimed at making young people more employable in the future, will also include conversations about different types of currency, online safety and scams and budgeting.

JF Hornby & Co offer accountancy, tax, corporate finance, payroll and cloud accounting services from Daltongate Business Centre in Ulverston.
