It’s celebration time at Mallow Credit Union

Mallow Credit Union is gearing up for what promises to be a very busy October.

Not only is it time for all the incredibly creative budding artists to showcase their talents again in this year's All Ireland Credit Union Art Competition, but they are also getting ready to celebrate International Credit Union Day on Thursday, 19th October.

The hugely popular art competition, now in its 34th year, attracts up to 30,000 entries nationally each year through around 250 credit unions. The competition is open to age groups across the spectrum, including children aged 7 years and under, right through to those aged 18 years and over. There is also a special category for those with physical or intellectual disabilities.

This year's 'Set your Imagination Free' theme is designed to give everyone, young and old, full scope to express their thoughts, imaginings, and anything that inspires them. Participants are encouraged to interpret the theme in any way they wish.

Last year Mallow Credit Union were delighted that their very own Margaux Gilbourne won her 7 years & under category at a national level with her vibrant hillside creation so they expect great things from all entrants again this year.

Winners, runners-up and merit award-winners at local level will go on to represent the credit union at regional level and from there, winning artworks will go forward to national level.

Entry forms are available form Mallow Credit Union and all partnering Credit Unions. The closing date to submit entries to Mallow Credit Union is Thursday 19th October 2017, which is also International Credit Union Day.

This year, credit unions across the globe are celebrating the important role that financial co-operatives play in their local communities. Mallow Credit Union Ltd and it's seven branches are inviting everyone to come and celebrate all that it offers.

Dreams thrive with credit unions so they are reaching out to the public to help them realise their dreams with fantastic financial services both instore and online as well as the availability of competitive loans.

Visit Mallow CU on Thursday 19th October for a day of celebrations, with treats and giveaways, and find out what your credit union can do for you!
