Credit Union to hand our free money to mark 10th anniversary

Rugby Editorial 12th Jun, 2014 Updated: 27th Oct, 2016

FREE money is being handed out to mark the 10th anniversary of Rugby Credit Union.

The giveaway is part of the celebration of the organisation that has approved low-cost loans of nearly £750,000 since forming in 2004 with funds available to take its lending this year to £1m.

On Friday, June 20 there will be a stand in the Clock Towers and the first 50 people who open an account will have £5 added to their balance.

And on Monday, June 23 new Mayor Ramesh Srivastava will cut a cake at the Credit Union’s headquarters on Little Church Street.

A year ago the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby – a former vicar in Souham – called on people to put their money into credit unions after pledging to put then under fire pay-day loan firms out of business.
