We were delighted to take part and contribute with some of our members in the latest episode of A Matter of Life and Death. This episode featured Clockwise Credit Union and told the stories of how loans from Clockwise helped two members.
David was able to continue caring for his sister who was able to return home when the loan enabled him to buy a bed, carpet and decorate her bedroom, while Alison was given an emergency loan while bailiffs waited at her home, blocking her car on the driveway for parking tickets she hadn’t been able to pay.
The episode shows how Clockwise Credit Union help so many Leicestershire residents with day to day loans and avoid having to turn to high cost lenders and loan sharks.
The show also features the Illegal Money Lending Team who show the scare tactics loan sharks use and report on having prosecuted 400 illegal money lenders since they set up. The money taken from loan sharks is used to promote the work of credit unions and really does make a difference.
Really great show to watch and features Leicester and Clockwise head office branch in the city centre, our team and members!
