National Credit Union GR8 Savers Week will take place from the 6th to the 12th May 2019. The aim of the initiative is to encourage young people (particularly primary school children) to develop a healthy savings habit in their local credit union.
All week, Rathkeale & District Credit Union will beposting daily Top Tips for our GR8 Savers on our facebook, twitter and Instagram pages. In our branches we will have Activity Sheets and Savings Charts available to take away. And we are running a great Colouring Competition. The colouring sheets are available in all our branches or download it HERE.
Rathkeale & District Credit Union are proud of our Youth Initiatives, such as our Schools Savings Scheme and our particiaption in the Annual School Quiz and Art Competition. We are also active sponsors of various organisations and events throughout our communities. Our Schools Savings Scheme is very active within the schools in our common bond, which we visit weekly to collect the very popular Sammy Stamps. We also offer a secondary school programme called Clued-In which teaches second level students about personal finance. The resource helps them to explore their relationship with money, the good and bad, and to look at ways that they can make smarter, more informed decisions. If you wish to receive more information about the Clued-In programme, please email us.
