First Heritage Co-operative Credit Union's Credit Union Week activities involved tree-planting exercises at primary schools as well as a heritage tour for grade 4 students of Central Branch Primary School.

The week was celebrated under the theme, 'People Helping People', and the tree planting was symbolic as it represented the children's continued growth to become strong citizens bearing 'good fruit' and making a valuable contribution to the nation.

The students were treated to a heritage tour courtesy as one of several activities designed to practically portray this year's theme. Among the stops were the Kingston Harbour, the National Gallery, FHC's Eureka Banking Hall and a games day and treat at Hope Gardens.
