Details have been announced of the Original Richmond Business and Tourism Association’s (ORBTA) loyalty card promotion which will be launched on November 1.

This year, there are ten prizes to be won, including a £100 voucher to spend in ORBTA member businesses.

Throughout November shoppers are invited to collect a loyalty card from ORBTA members, who can be identified by the posters in the windows of shops and other businesses.

Alternatively, find members at www.originalrichmond.co.uk

To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is collect six stamps from six different ORBTA members, complete an easy to answer question and submit your completed card to a participating member.

There is no limit to the number of cards that can be entered by an individual, but the stickers must come from six different ORBTA businesses.

All the completed entries will go into a draw.

The promotion starts runs throughout the month. Closing date for entries is Friday, December 10 and winners will be notified by Friday, December 17.

There are over 100 members of the association in and around Richmond including shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants in and around the town centre and on Gallowfields Trading Estate as well as businesses a little further out of town.

Marcia McLuckie, chair of The Richmond Business and Tourism Association, said: “This is a great opportunity to support our local independent businesses and to be in with a chance of winning one of the great prizes on offer. You know if you shop local that you are assured of personal service, knowledgeable help, an interesting choice and no need to travel miles to find those special gifts.”
