Shop Local, Shop Holmfirth Campaign - Christmas Hamper Giveaway
At Fair Trader we believe it’s incredibly important to be spreading the message on how to support small businesses during these difficult times on the lead up to Christmas and beyond. For us shopping local and shopping small is a huge part of that message. We are very lucky at Fair Trader to be sitting in the beautiful village of Holmfirth surrounded by incredible small businesses and owners who devote constant time, effort and passion to their craft.
That's why we've teamed up with 15 Holmfirth Small Businesses to create a 'Shop Local. Shop Holmfirth' campaign urging you to shop small this year. We’ve all had to adapt this year and think about ways in which we can reach our customers differently and we want to thank everyone that has taken the time to ensure they shop small and local. To show our thank you as a collective we've created a Christmas Hamper giveaway worth £250 for one lucky follower on Instagram to win. Have a read about what these fantastic businesses have to offer and what fabulous prizes they’ve donated to the giveaway:

An incredible array of Prizes from a fantastic group of businesses. Karen, our lovely Shop Manager at Fair Trader has pulled together the Campaign and Giveaway. She joined Fair Trader in September, but she is a familiar face on the Holmfirth high street having previously been shop manager at Swim Babes from 2008. Karen has said, “I thought it would be great for the shops in Holmfirth to do something together and the response has been amazing. It’s been a tricky year for local businesses, but we hope that people will take part in the giveaway and remember our ‘Shop local - Shop Holmfirth’ slogan this Christmas when they think about what they're buying".
