The Duchess Of Cornwall At DD-UK's Children's Money Education Workshop 2010
Thursday 25 February, 2010 | Hammersmith

HER ROYAL HIGHNESS, The Duchess of Cornwall visited one duchessof DD-UK Children’s Money Education Workshops held in primary schools in boroughs across London, the workshop was organised by Debt Doctors Foundation UK, in partnership with Experian UK.


HRH visited Melcombe Primary School to meet school children taking part in educational activities about money: saving, budgeting, investing and Fair-Trade.


During the visit to Melcombe Primary, in Hammersmith, West London, The Duchess joined youngsters who were being taught about world currencies and admitted she was a little stumped when the class had to identify monetary symbols.

The 10 and 11 year-olds were shown symbols that denoted the South African Rand, US dollar, Euro, Indian Rupee and Japanese Yen and had to name them.

The Duchess told the class afterward it was "fair to say I didn't know what some of the currencies were - the Rand one threw me".

The class was part of a project being run throughout the school with the help of Debt Doctors Foundation UK - a money education, information, awareness, counselling and support charity.

The charity works to inform and educate individuals of all ages about financial management, in order to prevent debt and create better lives for individuals and their families.

Before leaving, The Duchess also joined children in learning about the principle of "Fair Trade".


It was in all a fantastic event, and we at Debt Doctors Foundation UK are very grateful to HRH for honouring our invitation to the Children's Money Education Workshops 2010.


We also want to extend our gratitude to the Headteacher of Melcombe Primary School, Janet Moffat, the Deputy Headteacher Wayne Leeming, the teachers and staff and the pupils that participated in this very important activity.
