Christmas can be an expensive, and for some, a stressful, time of year. We hope we can offer some peace of mind when it comes to your finances. Avoid the payday lenders and high interest loan companies this year as these types of loans can lead to unaffordable repayments and unmanageable debt.

Cyber Essentials Accreditation

East Kilbride Credit Union is delighted to have achieved the required standard for the government-backed Cyber Essentials scheme.  General Manager, John Lange said, “The Board took the decision to seek accreditation as they are well aware of the risks to member data through viruses, malware and other cyber-attacks.  We worked closely with our local IT partners VectorCloud to help us secure the network and keep the devices and software up to date.  This helps us guard against the most common cyber threats and demonstrates our commitment to cyber security.”

Treasurer’s Gift

EKCU Treasurer’s Gift

Each year at the AGM the Directors choose one or two local charities to receive a share of the Treasurer’s Gift. This used to be paid to the Treasurer as an honorarium but since most of the finance and accounts work is done on computers by the staff team the Treasurer has very kindly donated the money to charity.

Prostate Cancer UK

Prostate Cancer UK were delighted to be one of our chosen charities and will put our charitable donation to good use.

Women’s Aid South Lanarkshire & East Renfrewshire

Women’s Aid South Lanarkshire & East Renfrewshire greatly appreciated our donation of £300.

Jeans for Genes Day

Our staff took part in Jeans for Genes Day this week helping raise money for genetic disorders.

It’s always great to have a dress down day at work, but even better when it’s for a good cause.
