During the summer MyBnk teamed up with Activate Sport to develop and trial a new physical financial education project as part of our award-winning Money Twist programme. – the results have been amazing and exhausting!
The Annual Activate ‘Be Inspired’ Gala saw us pitching this exciting project to funders and supporters.
Using our joint expertise to build a new and exciting programme for Primary Schools that challenges, excites and informs young people. We will use the medium of sports, games and competitive challenges to carry key messages about spending, public finance and preparing for the future.
Hosts Amanda Davies, from CNN and Sky Sports Ed Chamberlin, Activate’s Director Luke Sutton and MyBnk’s Co-CEO Guy Rigden showed our audience how such a project could work, make an impact on the lives of young people and why it was so needed.
Q&A’s with sports celebrities, an innovative Yellow or Red game (which MyBnk’s Co-CEO Lily Lapenna won!) and with an auction featuring items like Ronaldo and Messi’s signed jerseys – the pledges rolled in!
But, now we need your help….
Bringing things like tax, pensions and saving to life is MyBnk’s bread and butter and sport is a powerful educational tool, especially for hard to reach young people.
Just £12 will arm a young person with real life money skills that will enable them to take control of their finances and reduce the risk of debt and poverty.
