Credit union launches face masks to help Salfordians stay safe and avoid a fine


Salford Credit Union has created its own facemasks to encourage members to wear them and prevent them from being fined.

Credit union launches face masks to help Salfordians stay safe and avoid a fine


"We want to look out for our members health and wellbeing, and do all we can to ensure they dont get fined by not wearing a mask so we thought why not make our own!"
Alec McFadden, secretary of Salford Credit Union,



Salford Credit Union has created its own face mask to protect Salfordians health while they are out shopping in the city and help them to avoid a fine.

The Government’s recent announcement that wearing a face covering in shops and supermarkets in England is to become mandatory from July 24 inspired the credit union to create their own face masks, as those who fail to comply with the new rules will face a fine of up to £100.

Alec McFadden, secretary of Salford Credit Union, was behind the launch of the masks. He said: “It is really important to stay safe while out shopping, on buses, trains, or if you are popping to the pub for a pint. We want to look out for our members health and encourage them to wear a mask and protect their wellbeing. We want to do all we can to ensure that they don’t get fined by not wearing a mask – so we thought why not make our own! Salford Credit Union offer a safe place for savings and can also provide low cost loans which may be of help in these uncertain times. You can make an application from the affordable loans section on our website.”

The masks cost £3 and Salford Credit Union members can email info@salfordcreditunion.com and the money will be taken from their existing account. Non-members can also email to request a mask and a link will be sent to pay for it. 25% of all surplus made will be donated to Black Lives Matter.
