Show of support for Basingstoke
FIRMS in Basingstoke are being urged to sign up to a new scheme which aims to boost local business links and act as a show of support for the town and borough.
Mercedes-Benz dealership Tony Purslow is the first business in the town to sign up to the initiative which is called Business Backing Basingstoke, and it is hoped that many more will follow suit.
The Business Backing Basingstoke package has been launched by not-for-profit company Destination Basingstoke, and benefits include a profile on destinationbasingstoke.co.uk and opportunities for direct e-marketing as well free perk cards for staff.
Membership also includes a free ticket for the INSPIRE Business Awards and two free places at the Basingstoke Half-Marathon, for an all-in price of £350.
Sara Crosbie, group marketing co-ordinator at Tony Purslow, based at the showroom in Edison Road, Houndmills, said: “The great thing about this initiative is that not only do you get some help with marketing your business locally, but you become part of a growing community of businesses that back Basingstoke.
“You also know that your investment will be used responsibly by Destination Basingstoke to work on projects to help put Basingstoke on the map.
“We think it’s a great opportunity to develop our local business. We’re very proud to be based in Basingstoke and this is one very cost-effective way to show it.”
Destination Basingstoke managing director Felicity Edwards said: “We hope this is a way of getting local small and medium-sized businesses involved with Destination Basingstoke and to get their name out to new customers in the area.
“It’s also a way of very publicly declaring their support for Basingstoke.
“We’re delighted that Tony Purslow has already joined Business Backing Basingstoke – such a prestigious and well-respected business getting on board is a fantastic start.”
Any firms that want to sign up, or find out more, should go to destinationbasingstoke.co.uk.
