Stirchley and Brookside Parish Council celebrate their 30th birthday this year. To commerate this achievment they have made a £30,000 ethical investment in their local credit union, FAIRshare, to benefit more local residents in the community. FAIRshare have also expanded its operations into the parish, introducing a new Information Point at the newly refurbished Sambrook Centre.
Councillor Jackie Loveridge, Chair of Stirchley and Brookside Parish Council said 'FAIRshare Credit Union does an excellent jobe in helping local people build up savings, void falling into the trap of high-interest loan and manage their finances. By investing in FAIRshare, Parish Council reserves that would usually be earning minimal interest, will now be invested ethically for the benefit of local people and our community. Helping FAIRshare do more for local people seems a great way to celebrate our first 30 years'.
In creating this partnership more of FAIRshare's services will be available to the local community: The information point will be open on Wednesdays and Fridays from 9am to 12.30pm
