Cardiff-based Legal & General is a category sponsor of this year’s Credit Unions of Wales Awards.
The Awards will celebrate the contribution made by those volunteers, members, schools and partner employers to the ongoing success of the credit union movement in Wales.
Legal & General is a multi-national financial asset manager and the UK’s largest provider of individual life insurance products
They are the category sponsor for the Schools Partnership Award which celebrates the work undertaken by schools who run savings accounts to help develop pupils’ knowledge of financial responsibility, improve numeracy and other beneficial skills.
Lynne Sheehy, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager at Legal & General said: “We’re delighted to be supporting the Credit Unions of Wales Awards and in particular the Schools Partnership Award. It’s so important children and young people are given the opportunity to learn about personal finance and managing money at an early age.
“Enabling them to form a regular saving pattern when their young will hopefully put them in good stead for the future”.
Supported by the Welsh Government, the Credit Unions of Wales Awards will take place at The Pierhead Building, Cardiff Bay on Thursday October 18 at 11.30am.
It coincides with International Credit Union Day, which celebrates the spirit of the global movement and sees credit unions from across Wales combine to honour the legacy of community working.
