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 got 50 pence a week. I'd spend it on comics, football cards, cars or sweets. When I had my paper round I used my money to buy football kit, especially boots.... and still comics.... Shoot was my favourite!!! Roy of the Rovers too. And as I got older because I had my paper round my mum stopped pocket money. And when I was older I'd use my wages from my paper round to buy concert tickets, football boots and to pay for my bus fare to go and see my first love!!! I had my paper round until I was 18!!
