Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS - By MYLES BUCHANAN

LORNA Driver of Rath­drum re­ceived a sur­prise Christ­mas present af­ter win­ning the first of four De­cem­ber car draws or­gan­ised by Gorey Credit Union Ltd.

In late 2015, Gorey Credit Union Ltd com­pleted a trans­fer of en­gage­ments with Avon­more Credit Union Ltd, mean­ing the Gorey group now has branches in Avoca, Rath­drum and Round­wood.

Since then, mem­bers in the Wick­low area have had a chance to join the car draw which has been in op­er­a­tion by Gorey Credit Union since 2007, cost­ing only €5 per month to en­ter.

Lorna was the win­ner of what turned out to be the 80th car draw and col­lected the keys to her brand new Peu­geot 2008.

Tom Bren­nan, Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment Of­fi­cer at Gorey Credit Union said: ‘We are de­lighted to see a Wick­low mem­ber win, as in mid-2017, our com­mon bond area in the county dou­bled. It now stretches from south Bray down past Cur­r­a­cloe, cov­er­ing most of County Wick­low and north Wex­ford. It is great to see winners from dif­fer­ent ar­eas – we had an Ark­low win­ner in April 2017.’

Cur­rently the name ‘Gorey Credit Un- ion’ is over the door of the three Wick­low branches but there are plans to change the name to ‘Al­tura Credit Union Ltd’, pend­ing Cen­tral Bank fund­ing. A mo­tion to change the name was passed at a re­cent AGM.
