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 payment each year of 1% of all the combined balances in the accounts from its own fund, not from the savers’ interest. Last year the club received a cheque for over £10,000 thanks to all those fans who have such an account.
