Award-winning HEY Credit Union – helping families prepare for Christmas
Our local community bank, HEY Credit Union, is all ready for its busiest season of the year. As the clock ticks down and excitement builds, many people across Hull, East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire look to the credit union to ease the financial stress of the festive season.
John Smith, a founder member, comments: “It’s a hectic but exciting time of year for our staff and volunteer team, who all get a real buzz from helping our members meet all their saving and borrowing needs”.
2021 is proving a very challenging year for people’s finances, what with the impact of Covid and the rising cost of energy and household goods. A well-known doorstep lending firm that many families relied on also recently ceased trading.
Fortunately not-for-profit HEY Credit Union provides responsible Christmas Loans, at rates many times cheaper than doorstep lenders, to help families to budget wisely and spread the cost of their festive spending over a sensible period.
John says: “From November onwards, we’ll also be busy paying out around £1 million that our members have locked safely away in their Christmas Saver accounts all through the year. Every year, the number of savers and total saved goes up – it really does make sense to plan ahead with this popular account.”
HEY Credit Union has just been announced as the UK’s Treating Customers Fairly Champions in 2021’s Consumer Credit Awards. John says: “As these awards are voted for by consumers, we have our members to thank for getting us on to the winners list. It’s wonderful they think so much of us. We received 100% score in the consumer reviews, which makes us very proud.”
