There are calls for Cornish schools to take part in a new money skills project.

The expert-led money skills workshops are on offer after a major donation.

4,000 young people are set to benefit from accredited programmes covering banking, saving, pensions, student finance and survival money management.

The charity MyBnk's specialist trainers will also be helping vulnerable 11 to 25 year olds leaving care, not in employment education or training and ex-offenders in sheltered housing, refuges, and pupil referral centres.

The support was provided by the players of People's Postcode Lottery, which offers grants to UK registered charities for projects that help disadvantaged people in local communities.

Since 2007 MyBnk has helped over 135,000 young people in 660 organisations.

In 2015 the Money Advice Service gave MyBnk the highest rating of any UK financial education initiative for young people.

Clara Govier, Head of Charities at People's Postcode Lottery, said: "It is fantastic news that players are able to support MyBnk in their mission to arm young people with vital life skills. We are very proud that our players can continue to support the development of these fantastic causes."

Lily Lapenna, Founder & Co-CEO MyBnk, said: "We are thrilled with the support from the players of People's Postcode Lottery - it will enable us to help young people in our communities get to grips with essential money-matters and prepare for the future. Citizenship, Maths, Business Studies and PSHE teachers and youth workers, get in touch."

You can find out more from the Money Advice Service.
