Every year The Frances Browne Literary Festival receives generous supports from local businesses and individuals in the Twin Towns. Without this support it would not be possible to run the Festival.
Since our very first year the Ballybofey & Stranorlar Credit Union has been unstinting in their generosity.
Recently, Breege Duffy, Assistant Manager presented a sponsorship cheque of €100 to Celine McGlynn, Chair of the Frances Browne Literary Festival Committee with Sharon Conaghan, B&S Credit Union.
ABOUT (from www.bandscu.ie)
The Mission of the Credit Union is to promote the financial well being of its members. To achieve this purpose the Credit Union is committed to providing a broad range of innovative financial products supported by the excellent service of a dedicated, well trained staff.
The first Board Meeting of the B&S Credit Union took place on Monday the 28th July 1969 in the Butt Hall, Ballybofey. The work of that first Board has been continued and built on over 5 decades and has created a community financial co-operative which serves over 13,000 members in its common bond. The B&S has seen two changes of currency, and premises, since it's inception.
The team moved into their current premises in 1999 - this was extensively renovated in 2017 and now have a comfortable, secure and safe premises from which to serve the community in this part of east Donegal. Our common bond includes the areas of Ballybofey and Stranorlar, Cloghan, Drumkeen, Crossroads, Killygordon, Castlefinn and Convoy.
