Unify Credit Union, who supply payroll partner services to employers across Wigan and Leigh, walked away with three accolades at the annual Edward Filene Awards.

The payroll provider team, which also offers savings and loans products to individuals, were recognised with a ‘Special Award for Excellence in Film Production’ for their promotional Halloween video campaign, as well as an award for ‘Hosting Saving Schemes for Primary and Secondary School Pupils’ and another for the ‘Use of the Media’.

Chief executive of Unify Credit Union, Angela Fishwick, said: “As a team, we work really hard to support employers across our region to provide free payroll solutions that aim to reduce money worries of staff, so we are delighted to have won these awards for our work, which has helped us increase awareness of how a credit union is a better way to borrow and save. I would like to thank all of the Unify team for their continued dedication.”

The awards dinner, which was held at Manchester’s Raddison Blu Hotel, celebrated those who have successfully participated in the Filene and Biden Awards programme by showcasing their efforts and achievements.
