On 3 August, Kevan visited the Prince Bishops Community Bank on Front Street, Stanley.

The Community Bank is a not-for-proft, financial co-operative which offers all those who live or work in Co. Durham a convenient way of saving and also access to affordable, low interest loans. The bank is managed by its members and all interest goes back in the organisation.

Kevan said, “The Prince Bishops Community Bank really does offer an excellent way to save and a range of support to local people. I would encourage any of my constituents who might be considering turning to a ‘pay day’ or doorstep lender, to consider the Community Bank instead.”

To find out more, go to www.princebishopscommunitybank.org.uk or call 01207 232351. Whilst there, Kevan also took the opportunity to sign up for his own account:
