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

Pocket money for me spanned the shift from old money to new money I csn't renember exactly how much I was given but a small amount definitely. I felt SO rich with 20p or 50p. I could buy crisps - Golden Wonder salt & vinegar flavour were my favourite - and sweets. - Gobstoppers were great they lasted forever & sherbet fountains that weird combo of a stick of liquorice and sherbet. And my favourite comic which seemed to change by the week. The Beano, the Dandy and in time the Jackie. Oh I felt so rich ... and I was so lucky to have my pocket money
