Visitors to Leamington Spa’s Art in the Park event have the chance to win free shopping vouchers if they choose to walk, cycle or use public transport when travelling to the event.
As part of the ongoing Choose How You Move Leamington campaign, users of the free app-based reward programme that visit Art in the Park on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 August and log their green travel will be entered into a prize draw to win a £25 Royal Priors Shopping voucher; two vouchers are up for grabs.
The BetterPoints app is available for free download now through the App store and Play store, and local users will be automatically entered into the local Choose How You Move Leamington programme. The programme – which runs until the end of October 2019 - aims to encourage anyone who lives, works, shops in or visits Leamington Spa to log their green travel in return for BetterPoints that are redeemable on the high street in a range of independent and big brand shops, or can be donated to charity.
Additionally, the programme seeks to support the aims of Coventry and Warwickshire’s Year of Wellbeing partnership with those taking part in the scheme also benefitting from a boost to their health and fitness by monitoring their levels of physical activity through the app, even earning virtual medals as they hit their fitness and travel milestones.
Sarah Jones, Royal Priors Shopping Centre Manager, said: “This is a fantastic initiative that we’re thrilled to be supporting. As a hub of the town, we are committed to driving awareness of any local environmental awareness campaigns which help encourage members of the community to consider how they travel.
“Art in the Park is always such a popular event in Leamington so I’m sure there will be plenty of ‘green-minded’ individuals entering into the prize draw and we look forward to announcing the winner shortly.”
