PUPILS from Year 6 Brockhampton Primary School were recently visited by CAP Money Coaches from St Peter's Church, Bromyard.

The 26 pupils were given three lessons over three days of CAP Money Kids, a course which explains the value of budgeting, where money comes from, how families spend it, debt and the importance of saving.

Children were asked about the most important thing they learned over the three days: "It's important to spend on needs and not wants"; "It's okay to ask for help if you're in debt"; "There are charities to help, including CAP (Christians Against Poverty)"; "It's important to give"; "It's important to be content".

Year 6 teacher, Mrs Hodgkiss, said, "The children thoroughly enjoyed their time and have taken on board the importance of spending wisely."

Christians Against Poverty is a charity that gives free help to everyone regardless of age, gender, faith or background.

Starting 20 years ago, it first offered debt counselling and now offers a range of help to tens of thousands of people in hardship across the UK every year.
