Get ready for school with Metro Bank


On Sunday 25 August, Metro Bank, the revolution in British banking, will be holding free back-to-school arts and crafts events across all of its 68 stores, including the Cambridge branch at Christ's Lane, CB2 3BZ. Festivities will kick off at 12:00 until 16:00 and the whole family, as well as pets, are invited.

Kids will be able to create their very own bookmark ready for their first day back at school. Metro Man, the bank’s mascot, will also be making an appearance, kitted out in his new school uniform, complete with backpack.

Ian Walters, Managing Director of Retail and Business Banking at Metro Bank says: “We’re thrilled to be hosting our back-to-school event again this year, where all the family are welcome. At Metro Bank, we want everyone to understand the importance of money and our fun-filled family events help us do that. We wish all those heading back to school in September the best of luck in the new term.”

Metro Bank stores act as a real community hub, hosting a range of charity fundraisers and business networking events for local residents and businesses throughout the year. The bank also offers schools and local groups its free financial education programme Money Zone, which has already been delivered to more than 100,000 children across the UK.
