Here at PCCU, we like to think we know exactly how to enter into the spirit of Christmas. Although we spend the bulk of the year giving out financial help, dealing with loan requests and helping people to budget their available funds properly, we know that Christmas is about fun, family and the chance to enjoy a break for a few days.
One of the things which help us to enjoy the spirit of Christmas is the knowledge that our account holders if they’ve taken full advantage of our services over the year, will be in an excellent position to enjoy Christmas without the stress and worry of debt or being short of funds. What’s more, if they have taken out a loan with us to help pay for Christmas they can relax in the knowledge that the New Year won’t see them dealing with high-interest rates or making payments they can’t afford.
As ethical lenders, much of our focus is placed on making the local area in which we’re based a better place for everyone who lives there. That’s why we plough any money we make back into the community rather than taking profits for board members and external shareholders, and it’s also why we’re proud of everything which is happening locally over the Christmas break.
Head over to Burnley Mechanics Theatre on Manchester Road, Burnley on December 21st and you can enjoy the Chapterhouse Theatre Company adaptation of that seasonal favourite ‘A Christmas Carol’. If you live in Nelson and too much turkey and Christmas pudding has left you feeling a bit bloated, then spend some of Boxing Day taking part in a 5-mile walk from Victoria Park Car Park on Carr Road to Clarion House. Once there you can enjoy a Jacobs join, a traditional Lancashire feast at which every guest is expected to bring along a dish to contribute – now’s your chance to show off your delicious leftover curried turkey. If you’re looking for a traditional pantomime for all the family to enjoy then look no further than the Muni Theatre on Albert Road, Colne, where a production of Snow White is set to give you the chance to clap, cheer, boo and shout ‘It’s behind you!’
There’s no shortage of ways to enter into the spirit of Christmas – provided you can tear the kids away from the latest games console – and if you need to use the serviced of PCCU at all then please note that our opening times are as follows:
Nelson branch – Normal opening times Monday 18th to Saturday 23rd December. Closed Monday 25th and Tuesday 26th December. Open as normal Wednesday 27th December to Saturday 30th December. Closed Monday 1st January. Back to normal Tuesday 2nd January.
Colne branch, the same as above except Closed on the 30th December – Normal opening times Monday 18th to Saturday 23rd December. Closed Monday 25th and Tuesday 26th December. Open as normal Wednesday 27th December to Friday 29th December. Closed Monday 1st January. Back to normal Tuesday 2nd January.
Burnley branch – Normal opening hours Monday 18th December to Friday 22nd December. The branch is then closed throughout the Christmas/New Year period until Tuesday 2nd January when it opens at 12 pm. Back to normal after that.
If we don’t see you over the Christmas break then we’d like to take this chance to wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year from everyone at PCCU.
