Looking after the pennies is something we all remember being told when we were children. 

A young girl in Preston has the opportunity to take this a step further by winning a competition organised by Community Gateway Association (CGA), naming the organisations new “Piggy Bank” logo for Rents and Welfare support.

Lucy Rhodes (age 5) from the Ribbleton area of Preston named the piggy bank “Truffles” following a competition held in the organisations magazine “Gateway News”.

Over the past 18 months, CGA has refreshed its famous “Purple” branding with new illustration based images most notably used in CGA’s Corporate Strategy Map which saw the new Piggy Bank logo to help promote financial planning.

Jacqui Dixon, CGA Board member and Sarah Hislop from CGA’s Rents and Welfare team presented Lucy with a sparkly version of Truffles to keep her pocket money in.

The tenant led Rents Action Group also had a collection at its last meeting and presented Lucy with a little bit of pocket money to help her on the way to being a good saver.

As part of the competition the group promoted the need for tenants to financially plan as best they can to make sure they do not struggle, especially during the current financial climate.    

Jacqui Dixon said “Lucy has done a great job in naming our new piggy bank, Truffles is a lovely name and I hope this will encourage her to save her pennies so she can buy something she really wants in the future”
