Don’t get tricked, get treated: win £100 restaurant voucher this Credit Union Awareness Week

This Credit Union Awareness Week, we’re joining forces with credit unions across Greater Manchester to form SoundPound– a network of local and ethical loans and savings providers.

Together, we want to make sure you do not get tricked by shiny offers made by slick national lenders – which may lead to costly repayments and financial stress, and instead, get treated fairly by a local credit union – who offer online and in-branch services, great loan deals and an easy way to save.

Thousands of people are choosing not only to borrow with SoundPound partner credit unions but save too – keeping £24 million in the hands of local people – and not lining the pockets of bankers in London.

So, to mark the launch of the Greater Manchester credit unions partnership during Credit Union Awareness Week (Oct 16-20), we are offering you the chance to win £100 for a restaurant of your choice by answering one simple question:

Thousands of people choose to save for a rainy day with their local credit union. How much do people across Greater Manchester currently save with the SoundPound credit unions in total?

1. £5million
