School Saver Clubs

FAIRshare is working with the Three Parishes Big Local to set up School Saver Clubs in the Three Parishes.  The School Saver Club helps pupils learn about managing money and gives them the opportunity to save.  Membership is free, and children can deposit as little or as much as they wish.

The Gobowen Primary School Saver Club launched in June 2016.  With the support of school staff, the Year 6 pupils do a great job running the School Saver Club which is open every Friday at 8:45am – 9am in the D & T room.  In its first 6 months, members saved more than £1200 – congratulations to all our fantastic Young Savers!  The Club is open to all children attending Gobowen Primary School – for information & to join, click here.
