Bobby, Chloe and Elisha have been given a school project all about money!
They are going to write a pop song full of top money tips, but first they need to learn a thing or two…
Fundraising can be fun!
It’s a way to do something positive whilst enjoying yourself!
You could do something like a raffle – you know, where you sell tickets and if your ticket matches the winning number, you claim a prize!
When you organise an event like a raffle or a cake sale this is called a fundraiser!
The purpose of a fundraiser is to raise money for a cause or charity the organiser supports.
You might even see online fundraising. Perhaps a family member is planning to run the London marathon and want to use a website to help raise money for their chosen charity!
It’s a big responsibility looking after other people’s money.
It’s important to think about being safe when you’re collecting money. Especially other people’s money!
Fundraising is a lot easier if you choose a cause that people really want to help!
Plus! It’s also likely to make them feel better – helping others less fortunate than themselves.
You can hear Money Matters with the Co-operative Bank every weekday morning from 8.30am!
