A key organisation, founded by a member of the Windrush Generation to provide financial services to Britain’s Black community, is getting ready to celebrate its 40th Anniversary in 2020 with a series of major events.

Shane Bowes, the PCU’s Chief Executive Officer, is spearheading the celebrations, which will include:

  • A reception at the House of Commons
  • A celebratory service at St Martin-in-the-Field
  • A banquet in London’s West End, hosted by the BBC’s Clive Myrie.

Shane shared: “The PCU is proud of its many achievements during the past 40 years.  We have come a long way since it was founded in 1980, when Rev Carmel Jones launched the PCU, opening the first account with just a pound.”

He continued: “Since then, we have provided finance that has enabled congregations to buy churches, individuals to purchase property and set up businesses, and also offered personal loans and savings accounts.  We are proud of that legacy, because we have seen how doing so has impacted both churches and the wider community.”
