MIKE HEDGES AM SUPPORTS INTERNATIONAL CREDIT UNION DAY.
18 October is International Credit Union Day where people come together to celebrate the role of Credit Unions.
International Credit Union (ICU) Day® celebrates the spirit of the global credit union movement. The day is recognized to reflect upon the credit union movement’s history, promote its achievements, recognize the hard work and share member experiences. International Credit Union (ICU) Day® has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948.
Mike Hedges AM said…. ‘I am pleased to support the Credit Union Movement; I recognize the role that Credit Unions play in supporting people who are on low incomes and who otherwise might go to High Interest lenders or even loan sharks. When people are in a financial crisis they often find it difficult to access loans from traditional lenders – if you are in this situation, I would strongly urge you to get in touch with your local credit union rather than go to anyone like Provident or a payday lender.
The local Credit Union for Swansea now is Celtic Credit Union – they can be contacted at –
PLEASE CONTACT THEM FOR ADVICE IF YOU FIND YOURSELF IN FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES.’
