So Long 2016

Blog / so long 2016

As we end this year and reflect on the things we’ve been through, the Pogo office is looking forward to a fresh start in 2017. We wanted to share some things we thought were the highlights of this year and share some good news we’ve had over the past year too.

For the first time in 100 years, the tiger population has increased. Marco Lambertini, Director General of WWF International said:

“For the first time after decades of constant decline, tiger numbers are on the rise. This offers us great hope and shows that we can save species and their habitats when governments, local communities and conservationists work together...”

We think this is great news! Don’t you agree?

The Ice Bucket Challenge actually raised money, funding an ALS breakthrough! So for those people who got involved, you made a big difference to the lives of lots of people and should be feeling really proud! Doing the Ice Bucket Challenge raised $77 million which was dedicated to research and advancing the search for a cure.

Tim Peak completed his mission to the international space station and came back from space safely. The BBC has made a YouTube Video of the highlights and we thought you might like to watch, there’s some really great footage from messages from The Queen to food, a message for Adele to an international marathon. It’s just 3 minutes and you can watch the video here.

And what about our good news? We’re proud to say we successfully launched in the Isle Man. The Isle of Man holds a very special place in our hearts and we have so much going on with the community, it was natural that we would operate there and we’re so glad we are! We’ve also changed, for you – for the better! We now offer personalised rates depending on your circumstances and can tell you the likelihood of you getting approved for a loan, before you need to apply. We felt this was the right way to do business and the feedback we’re getting tells us you think it’s the best way too!

Is there anything we’ve missed? Let us know the best thing to happen to you this year!

Wishing you all the best for 2017, the Pogo Loan Teams.
