(from Marywell School to King Street to Summerhill Education Centre to Belgrave House and now Holburn Street) Grampian Credit Union has recruited nearly 7000 members over the years, given out more than £20 million in loans, and helped members to a fantastic
£3 million in savings accounts. The Holburn Street premises have given the visibility on the high street and this has been reflected in the continued member, savings and loans growth. The Current Account means members have even more choice and a more
complete service. 2010 credit union teamed up with the Co-op to deliver electrical goods at a low price to members. 2014 Grampian Credit Union took the decision to take part in the UK wide Credit Union Expansion project, with the aim to attract up to
1 million more people into Credit Union membership within the next 10 years.In 2016 the Credit Union has been awarded £100,000 by Lloyds Banking Group to enable it to support more people in the north east of Scotland, also open to all people living and
working in the Grampian area. The money would allow the Credit Union to increase its funding, which will in turn enable it to increase its membership, savings and lending in the future. The awarding of this grant was significant, as the North East of Scotland
faced a challenging climate.
