Lights, camera, action! Competition winning movie hits the big screen

Posted on 09 July 2015

In January this year, Nationwide asked students across the UK to come up with a short film idea designed to teach young people about the importance of saving money. The winning idea came from Saint Catherine’s College in Armagh in Northern Ireland for ‘Coinsequences’, the curious tale of a kitten saving up to buy a pet elephant.

Yesterday, at a red carpet event at Vue Cinema in Westfield, students from Saint Catherine’s College finally saw their characters come to life as part of their prize, joined by students from two highly commended schools - Owlswick School in Lewes, East Sussex, and Colne Community School & College in Brightlingsea, Essex. 

Nationwide has set itself the goal of empowering one million people to start saving by 2017, with a focus on helping young people become more savvy with their money and everyday number skills. The Big Money Movie Pitch was designed to get young people thinking creatively about the benefits of saving money.
