Bridges - your community bank are proud to Introduce our new NUST savings account.
Bridges - Your Community Bank is part of a worldwide network of savings and loan co-operatives. There are nearly 600 Credit Unions in Britain alone, with over 1 Million members.
Credit unions are run by local people to serve the financial needs of the local community on a not-for-profit basis. We provide members with help in managing their financial affairs, we encourage saving and provide loans at reasonable interest rates.
Bridges – Your Community Bank is the trading name for South Tyneside Credit Union Limited. We are a membership organisation (just £2 to join and £5 to open a savings account) and it is open to anyone who lives or works in Tyne & Wear and County Durham. Once your savings account is open you can then continue to save as regularly as you want. Your money is completely safe as we are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
We also provide low cost loans. These are easy to apply for and we have a number of ways in which you can repay this – over the counter, at one of our collection points, by standing order or payroll deduction. We are significantly cheaper than other high street money lenders.
Our Representative rate is 26.8% APR...
