Staff from Manchester Credit Union have been creating a buzz around the city, giving away free pots of honey and offering worker bees a chance to win a champagne afternoon tea at Honey Restaurant at Gotham Hotel.

It’s part of a Credit Union Awareness Week campaign backed by actress Maxine Peake which aims to show worker bees that there is an ethical way to borrow and save – and break away from a cycle of debt.

“I am supporting the Credit Union Awareness Week as the money is for the people of Manchester and stays in the city to help people take control of their money matters – with no big banker bonuses,” said Maxine. “Let’s help Mancs not banks!”

Manchester Credit Union is a not-for-profit finance co-operative owned by its members which has helped them save £3million in the last 12 months and supported hundreds of people out of debt. But there are hundreds more out there they could be helping.

“We have been thanking the worker bees of Manchester all week with little freebies,” said Manchester Credit Union chief executive Christine Moore.

“We want to help them by showing there is a better way to borrow and save, and not waste their hard earned money on expensive interest repayments. Our members are at the heart of everything that we do and we offer an ethical way to take out a loan while saving for your future – with no big banker bonuses.”
