Renfrewshire-Wide Credit Union is re-launching their primary school saving clubs under the new name of ‘Cash Cubs’. Cash Cubs is a new initiative building on the successful school saving clubs launched by the credit union in Renfrewshire schools in 2009. Bringing the concept bang up to date with the addition of the fun and exciting Cash Cub mascot, primary school pupils are encouraged to get even more active with their school credit union or to join from scratch if they’re not already a member.
Alison Dowling launched the original RWCU school credit union project and is now rolling out Cash Cubs across Renfrewshire. Alison said, “We’re delighted to officially launch Cash Cubs in Arkleston primary school. We’re also looking forward to launching in other schools, and bringing the fun and excitement of Cash Cubs to more of our budding savers across Renfrewshire Schools. Cash Cubs will help children to save up money and learn lots of essential life skills along the way, while building up a savings habit that we hope will last a lifetime.”
Alison added “Renfrewshire-Wide Credit Union has benefitted massively from Renfrewshire Council’s Credit Union Development Fund. It has enabled us to bring Cash Cubs to our credit union to revitalise the essential financial education work we undertake in partnership with Renfrewshire primary schools. We have more exciting plans in the pipeline that the fund has helped bring to life, so we give a big thank you to Leader of the Council Mark MacMillan and the council team for getting behind us to help the people of Renfrewshire”.
