THREE Southall Metro Bank colleagues, Zaineb Butt, Heena Vaghela and Neetu Shinh, delivered an session of Money Zone to Year 3 pupils at Yeading Junior School in Hayes.

Money Zone is a series of financial education lessons that Metro Bank offers to children - either virtually or in store.

It comprises four sessions, budgeting, saving, banking and the last session in store gives 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.

Zaineb Butt said: “It’s truly inspiring to see the curiosity and eagerness of these young minds, to learn about managing money wisely.

“By starting early, we can empower them to make informed financial decisions and lay a strong foundation for their future.”

Schools or groups interested in Money Zone can contact their Metro Bank store for more information.
