Recently Bradford District Credit Union was featured in a BBC news article. The article referred to how BDCU has helped, Single mum, Kirsty, who lost her home after building up debts due to her previous relationship by easing her money worries.
The debts made her struggles worse, especially during Christmas.
“It’s just one day… but that’s such a responsibility when you have no money and you don’t want to let your kids down,” she said.
Kirsty turned to the credit union instead of relying on any loans or credit cards to help her pay for presents.
