Blackbird Leys credit union gets £7k lifeline from council

thisisoxfordshire: Jim Hewitt Jim Hewitt

Blackbird Leys Credit Union has been given £7,000 from Oxford City Council.

The credit union needs £30,000 in funds for the next two years after it missed its opportunity to apply for annual funding in November.

This was because it was set to be merged with the Oxford Credit Union but pulled out as it did not want to stop running face-to-face services.

Treasurer Jim Hewitt said: “I’m delighted we got the funding. It certainly gets us well under way with our immediate needs.”
