Loans from the NHS Credit Union can make a huge difference to the lives of members of our financial family.
It's always a pleasure to hear from members who have been helped in this way - but we've seldom heard a more heartwarming tale than the one provided by Paisley phsyiotherapist Nicola Mullan.
Changing family circumstances meant Nicola and fiancee John Lauchlan wanted to bring forward their wedding, and they turned to the credit union for a loan to help make the dream a reality.
Our loans team pulled out all the stops to get the funds to the couple - and Nicola took the time to tell us how it all turned out.
They arranged a surprise party and invited the extended family on the premise that it was to celebrate her dad's 60th birthday.
Nicola added: ''We had a wonderful day at the Lynnhurst Hotel in Johnstone for our parents, siblings and nieces and nephews. In the evening, my dad introduced us as newlyweds when we had everyone together. It was absolutely wonderful - we really surprised everyone and we were treated like royalty all day!''
She added: ''If we hadn't secured the loan through the credit union we would never have been able to do this in such a short time, and I am so grateful to the staff in the office for making the process so painless. It was quite an emotional time and they couldn't have been nicer.
''Hopefully, our experience will encourage other people to use the credit union more. I can't believe how reasonable our payments and interest rate are. And the peace of mind that comes from knowing I am dealing with an understanding organisation is a huge bonus!''
Our picture shows Nicola and John cutting the cake on their big day.
