Small change for a sea change

Most of us were lucky enough as children to be given pocket money. What was pocket money for you as a child is small change now. It can help us give our children experiences and support that will create a sea change in their childhood.

My pocket money story

I didn't get pocket money. Not really. I used to work on Saturdays in my granddad's newsagents, which was down the bottom of Byres Road in Glasgow. In exchange for selling sweeties, papers and the odd packet of Silk Cut, I'd be offered the choice of a crisp fiver or five pound's worth of Panini football stickers. I don't think I'd take the cash, even today.
