Young Enterprise Manager, Julia Neale, asked Ecl-ips if we would like to work with them supporting local schools in the Learn to Earn programme. We jumped at the chance and enjoyed every minute. It’s a great initiative that encourages children to think about budgeting for their future. The morning session was very thought provoking for the children and enjoyed by all.
