April 2018 the Credit Union with a m embership of 260 celebrated their 50th anniversary at Bradford City Hall with long standing members, staff and presided over by the Lord Mayor of Bradford. At the event, members and guests heard from
long serving directors of Felix Credit Union, Max Prosper, Sharon Vassell and Virginia Fevrier together they have over 100 years of voluntary service to the credit union. They spoke about the history of the credit union and how they have served local residents
from all walks of life. Martin Logan and Jim Clancy from the British Credit Union Historical Society attended on the Saturday as a surprise visit by them on the chance they could collate that history for the website. Martin and Jim were delighted to see the
office open and meeting the volunteers still open for business before the extravaganza that night. On the way back home, we were struck by the enthusiasm and dedication of these lovely people we met was still evident after 50 years of service to their
credit union community. As said many times before and we say again, “in our headlong quest for growth and wanting bigger and larger credit unions we must never ever forget were we have come from and why we are here"
In December 2018 the celebrations
was completed when the credit union was honoured amongst local heroes at a ceremony at the annual Community Stars awards held in Bradford Town Hall, The event is designed to reward unsung heroes across the district who strives to make a difference in their
local communities across Bradford.
