The prizes include:
1st prize: SuperValu hamper
2nd prize: Hamper from Begley's Pharmacy
3rd prize: Voucher from the Abbey Hotel.
Liam Kelly, Manager at Donegal Town Credit Union said: “Donegal Town Credit Union, like all credit unions, shares a common goal to offer access to affordable credit and loans to the local communities we serve.
“We strive to provide even the most financially disadvantaged sectors of our communities with the tools and the opportunities to be financially self-sufficient and to help them on the road to achieving their goals in life; be they education or travel goals, a wedding or renovating the home for the family.
“This is the credit union difference that makes a real, positive impact on the lives of people in the local area.
“We look forward to celebrating this with our members, and indeed the whole community, on ICU Day.”
Donegal Town Credit Union has proudly served the local area for 50 years. Donegal Town Credit Union has a membership of over 8,219 and in the past year alone has provided €9.3 million in loans to the local community.
