International Credit Union Day
International Credit Union Day has been around since 1958 and celebrates the Credit Union difference – the membership between us and our members. Members always have been and always will be the pillar-stone of the Credit Union movement, which is why, yet again, we want to celebrate our members and show you all a fantastic time!
What’s Happening in Our Branches
To celebrate International Credit Union Day, on Thursday October 19th we will host a day of festivities with in-house prize-givings, colouring for children, decorations, refreshments and most importantly, smiles on all of our members’ faces! Join us to celebrate the role the The Lough Credit Union plays in our community and the close relationship that we have with our members and everyone in our common bond.
This Year’s International Credit Union Day Theme
This year’s theme was well thought out and is, ‘Dreams Thrive Here’. This is to highlight the role that Credit Unions play in aiding our members in making personal and professional dreams a reality. We have always wanted to help our members to progress in their lives and to be of benefit to them in allowing them to get themselves even further along their chosen paths with financial aid. With a host of loan and savings products, we help all of our members for newborns to the elderly to make their dreams a reality and it is what keeps us going everyday.
The Rest of Credit Union Week
So, even though we are celebrating International Credit Union Day on Thursday, 19th October, we are actually celebrating throughout the entire week, as it is Credit Union Week! For this, we will be sponsoring a generous sum of money to Cork City Missing Person Search And Recovery on Friday 20th October. Cork City Missing Person Search And Recovery is one of Cork’s most amazing charities. Bringing hope and love to members of the community and showing that through working together we can achieve amazing results, Cork City Missing Person Search And Recovery really is a dream organisation.
We will also be kicking off Credit Union Week on Monday 16th October at 9pm with Cork Hour on Twitter, where we will be giving away a fantastic prize!
Make sure to join in in our Twitter conversation on Monday and to call into us on Thursday to celebrate your local Credit Union while we give you prizes to celebrate our local members.
