THE Lingfield Point business complex, in Darlington, is launching a loyalty card offering discounts at shops.

The scheme, which has been developed with Darlington's town centre management, provides staff at Lingfield Point companies with discounts for town centre shops.

Lingfield Point's estate manager Eddie Humphries, said: "We decided to start this initiative because a high proportion of the people employed at Lingfield Point are based in the Darlington area.

"We are very keen to be as involved as possible in the local area and this is an excellent way of promoting Darlington town centre and encouraging people to find out what is on offer there."
