School Quiz

The Credit Union has been running school quizzes for many years and is always very popular with parents, teachers & students alike. We are all eagerly looking forward to both future local and national school quizzes.

Sponsorship

We are committed to providing financial support to local community organisations. Over the years we have advanced substantial funding to clubs, charities, societies, schools etc. Each year the Board of Directors sets aside a budget for sponsorship, the amount available varies annually. If you think that your organisation might qualify for funding then apply, giving details of the amount and the purpose for which the funding is required. All applicants are carefully considered. Not all applicants are successful.

Poster Competitions

The Credit Union Poster Competition is one of the most successful annual promotions undertaken by the credit union and the 2016 competition continued this winning formula. The competition is about encouraging and rewarding self expression, creativity and imagination among young people.
