A guest post from William Rhodes, chief executive of YourCU
YourCU is a local credit union and we’d like people to come and meet us at a ‘pop- up’ surgery we’re holding at the Hammersmith (King Street) branch of Barclays bank on 6 August. We’re very excited about the link-up which is part of a new £1 million community initiative by Barclays to support financial co-operatives in the UK.
We offer people in need of affordable loans, or who want to consolidate expensive credit card debt, somewhere to turn to – with loans on more favourable terms and a longer pay back period. The union also gives better-off residents the opportunity to invest their money in a venture that will benefit their local community as well as giving them a financial return.
YourCU provides loans between £50 and £7500, which can be repaid over a period of up to 60 months depending on the amount borrowed.
We also offer a savings account that pays 1.6 per cent dividend. We’re going to be holding a number of pop-ups across at Barclays branches in the Hammersmith & Fulham area in the coming months.
To find out more come along and see us in Hammersmith from 9am to 6pm and say hello, or visit: www.yourcu.co.uk or call: 0207 605 6341.
