Shoppers in Littlehampton will have the chance to win up to £500 in a new cash prize draw designed to attract shoppers and support local businesses in the run up to Christmas.

Love Local Prize Draw is a joint campaign between Arun District Council, Littlehampton Town Council and Littlehampton Traders Partnership to encourage people to shop locally as businesses recover from the Coronavirus lockdown.

A monthly cash prize of £250 is available in September, October and November, with a whopping £500 up for grabs in December 2020.

For a chance to win, shoppers will collect a sticker each time they spend £5 or more in participating shops, restaurants, hairdressers, cafes and other businesses.

Once shoppers have collected five stickers, their completed loyalty card will be entered into a monthly cash prize draw and one lucky winner will win £250 cash – and a £500 prize in December.

Councillor Dr James Walsh, Leader of Arun District Council and Chair of Littlehampton Town Council’s Policy and Finance Committee, says the draw is a great way to promote Littlehampton’s many independent retailers and local businesses.

“If every Littlehampton resident spent £5 per week in a town centre shop, this would bring £7.8* million into the local economy. The town centre is the heartbeat of Littlehampton and we all have the power to make a huge impact by shopping locally,” says Councillor Dr Walsh.

Shoppers can collect their Love Local Prize Draw card from participating shops and leave their completed card at local collection points each month for a chance to win.

Full details of the scheme and monthly draw deadlines can be found on the http://www.visitlittlehampton.co.uk/whats-on/love-local-prize-draw/ website.

The Mayor of Littlehampton, Councillor David Chace will launch the scheme at 11am on Tuesday 1 September in Littlehampton town centre.
