Happy International Credit Union Day!

It’s International Credit Union Day! Today’s the day we celebrate the spirit of the global credit union movement. We also had another reason to celebrate; it was the 70th Anniversary of International Credit Union Day! This year, we thought of a great way to celebrate the good that credit unions around the world are doing; by hearing what our members have to say (yes, you). We asked you to send in some stories of how the credit union has helped you. From the responses, we’ve picked a few of our favourites:

“I needed a month’s rent in advance, in order to move. Luckily I was able to get a loan through credit union using my child benefit. Without this, myself and my children would never have been able to move into our lovely new home.”

“I have been able to take my girls for a holiday due to the little savings I have managed to put aside over the years. I do not think it would have been possible otherwise. I am proud to be a member. I would recommend CU any day.”

“It’s been a great way of saving just a little bit every month, with a standing order. And the credit union are great at just transferring what I need from those savings straight into my bank account – all it takes is a quick email! Great service helping with my cash flow and putting money aside for a rainy day.”

“I have managed to save little by little which I wouldn’t have been able to do with a regular savings account.”

“Would have never saved if it were not for the credit union. Loans are good and interest rate reasonable”

“Very quick and simple service. Highly recommended to others”

“Fantastic service, both with savings and loans”

Hearing some of these stories remind us of why we do what we do. Whether you just joined or have been with us from the beginning, thank you for being a member of Oxfordshire Credit Union. Here’s to another 70 years!
