Credit unions across Scotland say they are keeping local community banking alive, despite the closure of the Airdrie Savings Bank.
We have our own credit union ‘Moneywise Prestonfield’ which was opened by Mr Tommy Shepherd M.P. The school has offered to donate £1 to each pupil to open their own account to financial capability and encourage good savings habits as early as possible.
Particular thanks go to Mr Kenny Ferguson who has supported the school in planning and setting up the credit union.
Moneywise Prestonfield ‘Snappy Savers’ is run by Mr Ferguson with the help of children in Primary 6.
Congratulations to Sarah for coming up with the winning name ‘Moneywise Prestonfield’ and to Lewis, Fajr, Abbie and Vada for designing the ‘Snappy Savers’ logo.
