3. The new £10 note
Back into more familiar financial territory, the Bank of England has unveiled the new design for the £10 note, featuring Jane Austen (a woman!) on the reverse, marking the 200th anniversary of her death.
Time to get ready for handling the note, whether in charity shops, collecting tins or elsewhere.

Really interesting report on advertising and gender stereotypes. How are charities doing on this in fundraising, storytelling, campaigns? https://t.co/9H1BKaNG6v
