Partnership contrasts with Wonga sponsors

icon money17 November ~ The Newcastle United Supporters Trust (NUST) have launched a partnership with three local credit unions, offering fans a chance to help their local communities by giving regular savers access to affordable short-term loans. Newcastle are currently sponsored by Wonga, a company who offer short-term “payday” loans at extremely high interest rates. NUST’s partnership with three local credit unions forms part of their wider aim of working with and supporting other community organisations.
