Celebrate

You can join us as we celebrate our 190th year by telling us about your experiences with the Society. Here are just some of the experiences we’re looking to hear about from our members:

Longest serving icon

We're looking for our
longest serving member!

As part of our 190th year celebrations, we are looking to find the member who has been with us for the longest period of time. Are you that member or do you know someone who has been part of Shepherds Friendly for a long time? Get in touch and share your story with us.

Share memories icon

Share your special memories of Shepherds Friendly with us

We’d love to hear about any special memories you have since becoming a member of the Society. Whether it is seeing your child or the one you love with their first car thanks to their child savings plan; or the unforgettable holiday paid for by your long term savings plan we would like to hear about it.

December Child icon

We’ve started the search for the child who will be born on 25th December 2016

Have you recently found out your pregnant? To celebrate the founding date of our Society, Christmas Day 1826, we’ve started the search for the baby who will be born on 25th December 2016 at 18:26. If you’re pregnant or know someone who is expecting this Christmas please get in touch.

Generations icon

Let us know how many generations of your family have been members of Shepherds Friendly

Many members view the Society as very much as part of their family and we’re looking for the family who can claim the most generations of Shepherds Friendly members to join us as we celebrate our 190th year. If you have 3, 4 or even more generations with a Shepherds Friendly plan we would love to hear from you.

We’ll be publishing the best stories on our website as part of our 190th year celebrations.

History

History

The Society was founded on Christmas Day in 1826 and this year we are celebrating 190 years as a mutually beneficial society with the sole aim of looking after our members. The Society's original plan all those years ago was to support its members financially in the event that sickness or injury prevented them from working and they lost their income.

Much has changed as Shepherds Friendly has grown into today's multi-million pound organisation, but our ethos and reason for existing hasn't changed at all.
