Virtue Money is a family run business with strong links to our local community so when the opportunity recently arose to lend our support to a local group of secondary school pupils we jumped at the chance.
The project in question is “Team Accelerace” all-female team from Linlithgow Academy who have entered into the F1 in schools competition. F1 in schools is a global initiative who’s aim is to encourage young people, from all backgrounds, to progress in their science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education with the view to more young people going on to STEM-related careers.
The aptly named “Team Accerlerace” represented Scotland at the UK Finals of the competition which were held at the Silverstone racetrack, the home of British motorsport, on the 19th of March 2018. They won 1st Place in the Development Class as well as the award for the fastest car. By winning, they qualified to represent the UK at the F1 In Schools World Finals which is due to be held in Singapore this September.
The team members include; Louise Paterson, Isla Petrie, Louise Murray, Molly Ganner, and Aoife Sutton.
Investing for your financial future is our main focus however to be able to be involved with the team and lend some support to help the girls realise their potential is incredibly satisfying.
We will be running a retirement seminar in the near future and if you would like to attend then please do contact me, Susan Ralston, either by telephone 0345 034 3424 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to add your name to the waitlist.
If you’re not at the “thinking of retirement” stage and need some financial advice on protection plans, investments etc then, as a firm of Independent Financial Advisers, we can assist with this. The first consultation is free of charge and no obligation, it’s basically just an informal chat over a cup of coffee to find out what your situation is and what we can do to help you.
