Cash Box Credit Union was founded in 2004, when five smaller credit unions merged to create one that could be used by anyone who either lives of works in Tameside. Its collection points can be found in Ashton, Hyde and Denton town halls and at Haughton Green community centre. Cash Box's current services include:
•White Goods Scheme.
As with all credit unions it is owned and contolled by its members and it uses income generated from interest on loans to support the running costs of the business. Any surplus after this is paid back in dividends to its members.
