International Credit Union Day 2022Posted on Oct 20, 2022
Today, we’re celebrating International Credit Union Day 2022! The World Council of Credit Unions founded International Credit Union Day to reflect upon the credit union movement’s history, to promote its achievements, recognise hard work and share member stories!
This years International Credit Union Day theme is “Empower Your Financial Future with a Credit Union”. The ultimate goal is to raise awareness of credit unions and their tremendous work they do around the world and Penny Post has proudly provided financial services as a free benefit to Royal Mail Group employees and their families for over 26 years!
Candy Swap with our USA partner!
As part of our International Credit Union Day celebrations, and in the spirit of Halloween, we sent a selection of British treats across the pond to our friends at our international partner credit union, Community First in Jacksonville, USA. In return, they sent us a selection of USA treats to try! Watch the reactions as both teams try all the yummy treats from Pumpkin Spice Kit Kats to Roast Beef Monster Munchies!
International Credit Union (ICU) Day® has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948. As we continue to strive for financial wellbeing for all, International Credit Union Day is our opportunity to showcase just how we are improving our members lives.
