Strapped for cash? Feeling the pinch? Need to make your money go further? Then Shoreline’s Ministry of Saving could be just the thing this summer.
The area’s largest affordable housing provider is taking inspiration from wartime Britain and inviting tenants to two free days of Make do and Mend money-management support, advice and activity.
Plus Shoreline will be on hand to provide welfare advice, support and money-management tips.
Shoreline employees have compiled economical and practical money-saving advice in a pocket-sized guide offering everything from energy-saving tips, to thrifty ‘wartime’ household ideas, up-to-date alternatives to throwing away and information on prolonging the life of items.
Shoreline business improvement manager Leigh Collingwood said: “The government’s welfare reform changes have had a massive impact on our tenants, coupled with the current economic climate we know that many people are finding it financially difficult.
“We’re already out and about meeting tenants face-to-face to provide them with the support and advice they need but we thought this was another way to help people make their money go further, as well as providing a free fun day for all ages.
“Tenants can enjoy learning new skills, pick up super-scrimping ideas and thrifty tips or take the opportunity to get money advice from us if they haven’t already done so.”
Shoreline’s Ministry of Saving events take place on:
Tuesday 6 August 2013: 11am – 3pm, St James Church, Grimsby
Friday 9 August 2013: 11am – 3pm, Cleethorpes Memorial Hall, Cleethorpes
