Residents urged to get along to Make the Most of your Money Day.

Renfrewshire residents are being urged to give their finances a health check and make sure they’re getting all they’re entitled to by popping into the Make the Most of your Money Day.

The free event will take place at Paisley Town Hall on Tuesday 18 March 2014, from 10am until 4pm.

“Unfortunately many families continue to feel the squeeze, and the fact of the matter is that we could all benefit from some good advice about money, our rights and what we’re entitled to.

“We’ll have free and confidential support on everything from coping with redundancy and saving for a rainy day to getting the best deal and becoming more ‘online savvy’ with your cash.

“We’re pulling together a whole host of useful and expert advice under one roof and I’d urge as many local people as possible to get this in their diary and come in for a chat.”
