"When money realises that it is in good hands, it wants to stay and multiply in those hands.”
In three weeks’ time we will celebrate the ‘Coming of Age’ of the Child Trust Fund, an account already set up and owned by six million children in the United Kingdom. So, on Thursday 6th September at 4 pm in the House of Commons, The Share Foundation and The Share Centre are hosting a 16th birthday party in order to celebrate this milestone.
If you live in the United Kingdom and have a 15 year-old child or grandchild, we’d like to invite you to come and join the party. There’ll be cake and balloons as you’d expect, and the main speaker will be Ruth Kelly, who was the Treasury Minister who first introduced the scheme in 2002. Spaces are limited, so please RSVP as soon as possible using the invitation acceptance link button on the right of the linked web page.

Please note that you're now asked to sign in (as a one-off event) when listening to Share Radio, either as our live stream or podcasts, or for listening to Share Music via our website and/or apps. It’s part of our transformation, to make our service more relevant and personal for listeners: and it’s made possible by being 100% online.
After you first enter your email address and have activated it, you shouldn't have to enter it again - as your computer or mobile device will remember that you've signed up. It’s not unlike BBC i-Player which is also asking listeners to say who they are. Those who have already registered in full do not need to activate: just log in, please, with the email address used for your full registration.
However we are also entering everyone who signs up and activates into our fortnightly prize draw for an internet radio, pre-set for Share Radio and Share Music: so there’ll be a chance to experience one of our Ocean Digital WR-220s which respond to a simple on-off button.
Share Radio online continues to be accompanied by Share Music, its sister online station: great instrumental background music for reading, drafting or entertaining.
When you just need some relaxing background music for reading, writing or entertaining, Share Music is there with an almost unbroken flow of instrumental folk music. It's a great complement to Share Radio, and if you buy an internet radio from us you'll find both Share Radio and Share Music preset and all ready to go.
Share Music has a great mobile app, Share Music UK, which displays information on tracks played.
