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

It was the highlight of my week....every Friday our pocket money was lined up on the kitchen counter. It wasn't a lot, but gosh I did a lot of planning about what to buy. Top of the list was making sure the delivery of my Jackie magazine continued. As I got a bit older and too cool for Jackie my thoughts turned to weekly trips with my pals to buy records at the Livingston "Rainbow" record shop. Many hours were spent thumbing through the racks and skipping out of the shop with my new vinyl in the black and white carrier bag. Those were the days!!!!!!
