Bromley-by-Bow Centre group in final of Money for Life Challenge

A group of young people from Bromley-by-Bow are celebrating success after having reached the final of a money management challenge.

The group from the Bromley-by Bow Centre, in St Leonards Street, reached the England final of Lloyds TSB’s Money for Life Challenge.

They set up their innovative project called Beauty Bargains with their �500 grant from Money for Life.

The youngsters have put the money to use by providing advice to women on low incomes in the Bromley-by-Bow area who spend a lot of money on beauty products or treatments.

Ruksana Begum, 22, from Beauty Bargains, said: “We had never taken part in anything like this before and so had to learn new skills.

The final will take place tomorrow (Thursday) at Wembley Stadium.
