Meet the Dollarmites- Pat, Addy, Lucas, Pru and Spen



Everyone’s favourite dog, Pat loves to run, play fetch and save up his bones so he can chew them later. He has a mischievous side and sometimes finds himself in a mess.



An animal lover, Addy loves taking care of her pets and teaching them tricks. She also loves to read books and write stories of her own.



A curious and imaginative boy, Lucas is always creating things. He loves drawing in his spare time and plays basketball with some of his friends from school.



Pru loves netball and swimming. Disciplined and driven, she dreams of being in the Olympics one day. She’s also a fantastic saver, always putting away her spare change in her Platybank moneybox.



You can usually find Spen exploring the outdoors or playing outside on his skateboard - but if he has to be inside, Spen draws comics and does chores for extra pocket money.

How to save BIG time

Got your eye on something?

If you really want to buy something, the quickest way to get it is to save up for it.

By putting away even small amounts of your pocket money, your savings will soon build up and grow into an amount that will get you what you’re after.

Ways to save:

  • Whenever you get pocket money, deposit a regular amount straight into your savings account.
  • Offer to help around the house to earn extra pocket money.
  • Put any spare coins you have in your moneybox and see how quickly it fills up. When it’s full, deposit it into your savings account.
