OCTOBER 2014 – 135 New church members
Here is the moment on Monday 27th October that the Reverend handed over 135 new member applications to the LMCU from the South London Citizens! Fantastic news!
A group of Peckham residents brought the applications to LMCU to highlight the services offered by our local credit union as an alternative to payday lenders. This event was a joint venture by South London Citizens, Copleston, a church and community centre in Peckham, and the Church Credit Champions Network.
This is the kind of action we’re hoping church across London and the country can take to boost the local ethical finance sector.
Take a look at Lucky Chandrasekera, London Mutual Credit Union chief executive talking about the effort on BBC London.
