Skelmersdale Against Loan Sharks Launch Event

SWLICAN would like to say a big thank you to everyone who turned up for the launch event of Skelmersdale Against Loan Sharks. Organisations from across the West Lancs Borough showed their support to the campaign. Mayor Iain Ashcroft’s speech was particularly well received as he drew the finer points of not getting involved with illegal money lending together. Angela Fishwick from Unify Credit Union and Anthony Greenway, Debt Adviser from ICAN held the floor with a series of questions and answers.

Funded by Awards For All and the Big Lottery this campaign will take place over the next few months in and around Skelmersdale.
