Read about what happened when the Bank of England visited a LifeSavers schools, success for LifeSavers savings clubs and top tips for parents.

Andy Haldane, Chief Economist at the Bank of England, is on a mission to listen and learn from local communities, and to help more people understand how the wider economy affects their personal finances. This is what led to Andy to start his day in early February with cashiers at the Josephine Butler Church of England Primary School, in Ashington.

With the Year 5 and 6 pupils in charge of the LifeSavers savings club, Andy got to grips with the maths skills, customer service and team work needed to process the morning’s deposits.
