A Mexborough-based credit union has scooped three top national awards.

South Yorkshire Credit Union won the Edward Filene Supreme Award for Social Entrepreneurship at a ceremony in London last week.

It also took the award for Excellence in Dispensing Financial Education, and chief executive officer Murdo Macleod was awarded the Excellence Shown in Performance by a Chief Executive Officer gong.

The awards, presented by Jamaican high commissioner Aloun Ndombet-Assamba, were made by the International Credit Union Leadership Development and Education Foundation.

Judges said Mr Macleod was “an inspirational and dedicated CEO, making impressive inroads into the market at all levels.”
