Bicycle Draw Tipperary Credit Union

Bicycle Draw Competition 2019

Youth Programme

As part of our Youth Programme our Summer Bicycle Draw is back again. The bicycle draw competition is designed to encourage our younger members to save. The competition’s objective is to encourage children to save a little bit on a regular basis and to remind them that they don’t have to spend all of their pocket money at once. Teaching children the benefits of saving and managing their money is a life skill that they will continue to use in their adult life.

Transition Year Bursary Awards

Transition Year Bursary Awards 2019

Transition Year Bursary Awards

Tipperary Credit Union has a very proactive Youth Committee that runs various youth initiatives throughout the year. One such initiative is the Transition Year Bursary Awards, which is now in its fifth year. We at Tipperary Credit Union are aware of the benefits of a student completing the Transition Year programme. Designed to help students develop not just on an educational level but also on a personal, social, and vocational level it has a very positive effect on the student. The cost of putting a child through Transition Year can range from €500 to €1,000 depending on the school. As a result of this very costly expense the Transition Year Bursary was created.

  • Tipperary Credit Union offers five €500 bursaries, one to each of the five secondary schools in our common bond.
  • The Transition Year Bursary is an open draw and requires students to fill out and complete an application form and return it to our Head Office (Emmet Street, Tipperary Town, Co. Tipperary).
