Bicycle Draw Competition 2018

Bicycle Draw Competition Winners

Our Young Savers Bicycle Draw Competition came to end on the 31st of July. We would like to thank all the parents and guardians who encouraged their children to save. The bicycle draw is a great way for young children to see the benefits of saving on a regular basis. It really is important to encourage children to get in to the habit of saving a little bit on a regular basis and also to remind them that they don’t have to spend all their money at once. Thank you to all our young members who took part.

The Winners

Bicycle Draw Competition 2018

Youth Programme

As part of our Youth Programme our Summer Bicycle Draw is back again. The bicycle draw competition is designed to encourage our younger members to save. The competition’s objective is to encourage children to save a little bit on a regular basis and to remind them that they don’t have to spend all of their pocket money at once. Teaching children the benefits of saving and managing their money is a life skill that they will continue to use in their adult life.
