Advice needed on spending money

    My son (13) is going on a school trip this weekend with some of his classmates (2nd year) to two premiership matches, they will also be visiting Cadbury world and will have a couple of hours free time at a shopping centre. Just wondering how much sterling I should get for him? They're meals are obviously provided in the cost of the trip (€300). I had a figure in my mind of about €60 what do you think? Thanks

    I think £50 should be plenty,the exchange rate is so bad at the moment

    Cadburyland has a big shop with LOADS of chocolate.. (obviously). They have bats that are not yet on sale and huge kilo bars of chocolate. I'd bear this in mind too as they're sending kids through this as its the way out.. Send him with a larger bag and a list for christmas :D
    Seriously.. every child's dream!
    Unless hes not a sweet eater then E50 sounds like plenty!
    I was there a few years ago and i spent a flipping fortune!
