We are delighted to announce Junior Savers Week is coming up 26th September – 2nd October 2022. The aim of Junior Savers Week is to encourage children to save while bringing some fun to the week with activity sheet, prizes and more.
This Junior Savers Week we are inviting in anyone under the age of 16 to open up their very own savings account with Waterford Credit Union.
As a matter of fact, savings can teach kids some valuable lessons from a very young age. Teaching kids to save for what they want to purchase will prepare them for life as they get older. Consequently, they will learn the value of money while striving to achieve their saving goals.
As part of the week, Waterford Credit Union will be promoting a Junior Savers Reward Scheme. Additionally, Junior Savers Sticker cards will be made available to members who open their savings account. Each time a child lodges money into their account, a sticker will be placed on the card. A reward will then be given if they complete the card.
Opening up an account with Waterford Credit Union is a simple process that your children will thoroughly enjoy. They will be greeted with a friendly face by our kind and professional staff who can help them build an understanding of the value of saving.
The Credit Union have also partnered with educational company Twinkl, to provide free, educational resources for children in primary school, called ‘Start Money Smart’ specifically focused on finance and money. All the materials are available for parents and teachers to download on Twinkl.ie.
In celebration of Junior Savers Week 2022, we will be giving away a €50 Omniplex Cinema gift voucher to one lucky winner who decides to open a savings account.
The entrants for the competition must be under the age of 16. Entrants must also open a savings account between the 26th September and the 30th October.
The winner will be announced on the 31st October 2022.
Happy Junior Savers Week!
