The Chamber would like to pass on this information from Jon Krause MP:
Together, Federal Member for Wright, the Honourable Scott Buchholz MP, and I are “putting our money where our mouths are” and are bringing back the “Buy Local Christmas” Campaign for 2021. This campaign will be run in the lead-up to Christmas in conjunction with various Chambers of Commerce across the Scenic Rim, to support local businesses, who have had to endure drought, fires, floods and COVID-19.
I know many businesses in our region are doing it tough. While I know many people buy local often, sometimes an extra incentive can help – so every dollar possible stays in our community.
The Buy Local Christmas 2021 campaign will give local shoppers a chance to win $1,000 cash.
To enter, people simply need to write their name and phone number on the back of a receipt from a local business from 8 November until Christmas and place them in a collection box around your community.
Any purchase from a local business will qualify – making it simple and easy so people are encouraged to spend locally and as often as possible in the lead up to Christmas.
Can you help?
Can you help by hosting a collection box at your business? That way, it makes it easier for people to enter the draw and encourage others to do so as well when they Buy Local Christmas 2021. We will provide the collection box and pick it up after Christmas.
If you can help, please contact my office via email at email@example.com.
