Christmas Savings

Christmas Savers Account

Celebrate with sensible savings

The Christmas Savers Account was introduced to help our members to budget and save sensibly for Christmas each year. This account is completely secure and comes with all the great benefits of being a Credit Union member. With us, your savings are protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) so there is no risk of you losing your money just before Christmas. You can also withdraw from this account as much or as little as you need, saving any extra funds for next year. Putting money aside in advance with our Christmas Savers Account means you can focus more on how you can enjoy a debt-free Christmas this year. Take advantage of this service as soon as you join and start saving today.
