Barrow AFC is the town’s only professional football team and like the rugby relies on the people of Barrow to support them as much as possible. Attending the games is the best possible way to do this but off the field there is the opportunity to open a Bluebird Affinity Account which will give the saver a competitive, easy access account and Barrow AFC an extra source of income.
Furness Building Society make a donation from its own fund, not from the savers’ interest. Last year the club received a cheque for over £15,000 thanks to all those fans who have such an account.
|Account Name||Barrow AFC Affinity Savings Account|
|What is the interest rate?||
The current interest rate is: 0.10% Gross / 0.10% AER
Interest is variable, calculated on a daily basis and is paid annually on 31 December.
Interest can be added to your Furness Affinity and Charity account, paid to another suitable Furness account or an external bank/building society account.
|Can Furness Building Society change the interest rate?||
As the interest rate is variable, we may change the rate if we reasonably believe that the change is needed.
If we increase the rate we will tell you within 30 days of the change. If we reduce the rate we will tell you no less than 14 days before we make the change.
For full details on how and why we will change the interest rate on your account, please refer to Section 7 of the General Investment Terms and Conditions.
What would the estimated balance be
after 12 months based on a £1,000 deposit?
Based on the current rate of interest, if you deposited £1,000 in this account, after 12 months you would have £1,001.
This figure is for illustration purposes and is based on no additional deposits, withdrawals or changes in interest rate within the 12 month period.

AER stands for the Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added each year (excluding bonuses). Tax free means the interest you earn is exempt from UK Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax. From 6 April 2016 the Government has introduced a personal savings allowance. The allowance is £1,000 for basic rate tax payers and £500 for higher rate tax payers. There is no allowance for additional rate tax payers. From this date tax will not be deducted from the interest the Furness Building Society pays on your savings. If you have any savings income over your personal savings allowance you will have to pay some tax on this. HMRC will normally collect the tax by changing your tax code. Interest from ISAs does not count towards your personal savings allowance because it is already tax free.
