The Save and Sound project is now looking further afield for more credit union memories. The project wants to make sure that the efforts of people who worked to set up and run credit unions in the early days of the movement are not forgotten. The history of British credit unions is a diverse and inspiring one and the project wants to hear from anyone who was involved with a credit union in whatever way. Anyone with any information about early credit unions is encouraged to get in touch.
By collecting and sharing the unique personal memories of a diverse range of credit union pioneers, Save and Sound will help many more people learn about the history and heritage of British credit unions.
Save and Sound was originally funded to collect 40 oral history interviews across the north of England, but now the project expands across Britain. The project has already recruited volunteers that have been trained as oral history interviewers or to assist in the development of a new website.
