    Donate it to Japan. You won't get anything in return but a warm-gooey feeling inside. It's worth it

    It all comes down to risk really. You could bet it all on one thing. Or even try matched betting for a high return. £20 is not really enough to invest in anything so betting may be the quickest way to go about it. Afterall "time is money" so the longer you spend investing it the more money you loose in principal.

    Shove it in your pocket.

    When you take it out, you will find it in-creases.
    I make lol.

    Put it in a coat pocket, hang it up in a cupboard and forget about it.

    Six months down the line when you rediscover that note, the satisfaction you would get would probably outweigh any short term minuscule profit you might get.

    £20 isn't worth your time. You can't really consistently expect a return well into the double digits for whatever amount you have.

    Rack up a few hundred, then you can think of playing with it.

    Fold it and put it in your pocket.

    Or maybe save it.

    Obviously this is one of the questions for the junior apprentice application - I had to think of my answer for this too. Anyone helping this guy is just making the process unfair, I suspect if Talkback Thames discovered you were posting on the internet to think of answers to their questions you would be highly likely to be disqualified from the process.

    Also, just a point from the guy who posted above. Don't be under the impression that those who recruit for the Junior Apprentice amongst other associates do not use the TSR forum.

    There are those who are fully aware of the processes and the people on here.

    It isn't exactly that hard to set up a username now is it ;-) all I'd say, give it your best shot and effort and see what comes out of it! Good luck!

    Buy a book. Turn your money into knowledge. Use the knowledge to get a good degree. Use the good degree to get a good job. Use the good job to make lots of money.

    Now THAT'S an investment.
