Children invited to join free craft event hosted by Swindon bank

By Jessica Durston - 4 August 2022


Metro Bank will be holding a free craft activity week this month for families in Swindon to enjoy.

From Monday 15 – Sunday 21 August, the UK’s community bank, Metro Bank, will host a complimentary back to school craft activity week.

The bank's staff say this will provide a great chance for parents and guardians to relax whilst the kids entertain themselves with a colouring activity, and fun financial education exercise.

The Swindon Metro Bank store will host the craft event throughout the week and kids will be welcome to drop into the store, or pick up a take away craft bag.

Metro Bank’s Store Manager Steve Gilchrist said: “We’re always looking for ways to support our local community. We know how long the summer holidays are and we are glad to be able to offer this free event for kids.

"Last year’s craft event was lots of fun and this year will be no different. You don’t have to be a customer to come in and enjoy the event – everyone is welcome.”

In addition to decorating and gaining some financial knowledge, kids will also be able to take a selfie with Metro Man – the Bank’s striking mascot.

Metro Bank is known for its family-friendly approach to banking and prides itself on championing its local communities. Throughout the year, the bank has hosted a series of events ranging from business networking sessions, to its free financial education workshops, Money Zone, delivered to over 250,000 school children.

Metro Bank’s Swindon store is located at 1-4 Regent St, Swindon SN1 1JQ.

The store is currently open Monday – Saturday 8.30am - 6pm. Sunday: 11am - 5pm.
