Born Free Foundation - Keep Wildlife in the Wild

Co-operative Bank

The Co-operative Bank has joined forces with Born Free to offer an account for young savers. The Bonus Account is designed to grow with a child and gradually increase their financial awareness. One of Co-operative Bank’s principals is to educate their customers.  With this goal in mind they wanted their young customers to receive educational gifts when their account is opened.

The Bonus Account can be opened by an adult on behalf of a child, or they can open an account in their own name if they are aged seven or over. The account and their responsibility for it grows with the child. Over the years, they will learn to understand the importance of budgeting, how to use a cash card and to keep track of their spending.

Young savers receive gifts including a moneybox, pencil case and stationery made from recycled materials and a self-standing calculator all of which are supplied to The Co-operative Bank by Born Free for a donation.
