Money sense charity awarded funding to help Tower Hamlets children
A Tower Hamlets education charity helping young people to learn the basics of numeracy and finances has been awarded �24,000 by Britannia.
MyBnk, based in Heneage Street, will be able to deliver 150 free sessions on money skills and financial capability to secondary schools, colleges and community groups in Tower Hamlets with the funding.
The grant was awarded at the end of last year, one of �500,000 given out by Britannia, in 2010.
Lily Lappena, MyBnk’s chief executive who set up the charity in 2007, said: “We are thrilled with the support from Britannia – it will enable us to provide vital life skills and help young people in our communities to get to grips with essential money-matters.”
Britannia branches in London are urging other community groups and charities to apply to its community fund and charitable foundation in 2011.
