Christmas is an expensive time of the year and if you pay for it on a credit card, store card or by borrowing from a High Street loan provider or Pay Day loan company, you could end up paying a great deal extra in interest charges. By saving in advance you can avoid these extra costs. Our Christmas Club is open to all our members to help you plan and prepare for those Christmas expenses. You can either allocate a portion of your current contribution, or increase your contributions to cover the amount you want to go towards the Christmas Club. Saving a small amount each pay day soon adds up. Just think how handy it would be to have an extra £200 to go towards Christmas. By saving only £20 a month between January and November that could be the case!
