LUCKY winners of a shop local scheme in Richmond have received their prizes.

This year’s Richmond loyalty card promotion ran throughout November with Original Richmond Business and Tourism Association (ORBTA) members handing out cards and stamps to their customers each time they shopped local.

Ten prizes were on offer including £100 in vouchers to be spent at member businesses.

The lucky winner of the grand voucher prize was Linda Turnbull, who has until the end of January to spend her vouchers.

Other prizes included £50 of vouchers, a smart leather satchel given by Berber Leather and a pair of Swarovski and Silver earrings from Goosewing Gallery.

Chairman of the ORBTA, Marcia McLuckie said: “The loyalty card is a great way of promoting our local businesses and it is an opportunity to give something back to our shoppers.

"We are very pleased with the response the loyalty card has received. In Richmond we have a good mix of local, independent retailers that draws people to the town as well as serving local people.”
