The only requirement for joining the scheme is to support the community in one of many ways! Whether it’s through volunteering your time and skills, or by giving us a monetary donation that we will then distribute to local charities, Lewisham Local cardholders are known for being socially responsible individuals. 50% goes to the Community Fund while the other 50% go to costs of running the card.
Check your eligibility for a Lewisham Local Card and choose the right scheme for you. Either get a free one by volunteering in the Borough, or buy one for £20. Once a member, continue supporting the community by voting on which local projects should receive funding with the proceeds. Don’t forget you can buy multiple cards for a reduced price and allow the whole family to enjoy discounts and deals!
As a thank you for all the support you give to the community, Lewisham Local has partnered with over 500 businesses to offer you amazing deals and discounts of up to 50% off in your local shops. Make sure to browse different areas and categories so you can know what businesses around you can offer!
Although buying from multinational corporations may sometimes feel like the easy choice, if we want to see our community flourish we must be ready to make some changes to our spending habits. Lewisham Local aims to make this step easier by making it cost-friendly, so you can enjoy your local discounts while showing off all you do for our community! Keeping our money local is necessary, especially in Lewisham, which thives with a large percentage of micro-businesses.
