Our savings helped pay for my son to go to university

Everybody writes their own story as they move through life and build a financial future for themselves and their family. Since our Society started back in 1853, we’ve helped our customers write a lot of new chapters and even though times change – none more so than they have at the moment – we’ll continue to help people find their good place like we always have.

Different goals, different ways to find a good place

Everyone has a different goal in mind for their savings. Our team are here to help our customers choose ways of managing their money that suit those ambitions and the way they like to save.

It’s how we were able to help Helen Kwan and her son, Andrew, (models used to illustrate above) as they saved to help pay for his university accommodation.

Helen and Andrew started saving together having spoken about the best ways to build their money pots and save for the future.

My son Andrew and I shared ideas about saving and opened an account together with Skipton. This account came in very useful when my son needed to save up to pay for his university accommodation.

Helen, Skipton customer

University accommodation can be expensive, but Andrew was able to save up to cover the cost and look forward with confidence to what was a really exciting time in his life…thanks to a little help from mum, of course.

I am so proud of him. He went to Kent University and studied Law.

Helen, Skipton customer

Helen and Andrew were able to save in a way that suited them and their goals. They discussed what they wanted to do and how they wanted to do it and then chose an account that would help them find their good place.
