“Ever since I moved to the Somerset area, Somerset Savings and Loans has been there for me and my family. My daughter is in the army cadets, SSL has helped with loans for annual army camps, an army exchange program in Canada and I can proudly announce that she is now in military college and is joining the forces full time in August. Our rabbit had a huge lump in his neck, sadly it was cancer, but SSL were so very helpful, sadly he had to be put to sleep but without your help we could not have paid to put him out of his terrible pain. Most recently our cat Tiger has been extremely poorly, with your help vet bills could be paid and Tiger is thankfully back to himself. I think the work you do is amazing, and I think you are all wonderful caring and compassionate people, thank you does not seem enough. You have given my daughter the chance of a lifetime and from the bottom of my heart, a million thanks.”


“I joined Somerset Savings and Loans some years ago now when I became a single dad to my two kids. I thought it would come in handy should I ever need help. You guys have been great the first Christmas with my kids on my own was a tough one. Half the household salary had gone and I was struggling to adapt, you gave me a loan and Christmas was a good one. Sometime later the gearbox on my car went, within two days I had another car thanks to you guys. Next year my eldest goes to university. I know, should I need help, that Somerset Savings and Loans will be there for me. Thanks to you all, for making a really tough time a little easier.”


“I joined the Credit Union in December 2004 and for ten years just used the account for small savings. In the autumn of 2014 my great nephew told me he needed £3,500 for university fees. I called around many sources to see if I could borrow this amount. The general response was that it was too small a sum and the least they would consider was £7,000. I had been thinking about joining a cruise to the Caribbean including Cuba, and the lowest price for a single cabin was £3,500. The totals just seemed to add up very smoothly, so I asked the Credit Union for £7,000. Last weekend I was delighted to see the balance still owing on the loan was just lower than the value of my savings, which enables me to draw a nice line under the whole deal. My great nephew has really enjoyed his time at Liverpool University, and my cruise was great, certainly the most outstanding holiday ever. Best wishes.”


“I think Somerset Savings and Loans is amazing. They have helped me to save for a rainy day, save for my children and I have had numerous loans now for so many projects and all the time my credit rating is improving. The staff always have time to talk to you which means a lot.”
