It has been an unusual few months when it comes to children going to school, with the official summer holidays just starting we know there’s one issue which is bound to already be worrying some parents, and that’s the cost of purchasing a brand new set of school uniforms when schools are back in September.
Here at PCCU we provide help with school uniform costs because we realise just how difficult paying for uniforms can be. It’s hard enough for parents with just one child, but two or three kids needing new blazers, trousers, skirts, socks and shirts can soon mount up to become pretty much unaffordable.
That’s why we’re happy to provide help with school uniform costs. The alternative is for some parents to spend the entire summer break worry about affording all the clothing they need to buy, rather than relaxing and enjoying the time spent with their children. Our help with school uniforms costs doesn’t simply cover the expense of buying uniforms – by putting cash in the bank accounts of parents it puts them in the powerful position of being able to shop around at leisure for the best possible deal, safe in the knowledge that they’ve got the costs covered.
In the past, many parents may have worried about going into debt in order to buy school uniforms and the kind of interest rates and extra fees charged by many lenders mean that this kind of worry is very easy to understand. We however are an ethical lender and we also run as a not for profit co-operative, that means we’re able to offer our account holders the lowest possible interest rates. It also means that we structure their repayment plans to be affordable rather than profitable, and offer the same highly competitive rates to every single one of our borrowers.
