Addison Lee supports SMEs with ‘Give a Lift’ competition
Addison Lee is offering London’s small businesses the chance to win free journeys and deliveries to help with the ongoing pandemic.
The ‘Give a Lift’ competition provides the chance to win one of 10 business accounts, each with £500 of free journeys or courier deliveries to support SMEs during these challenging times.
Businesses – and their customers, friends and family – can enter by visiting the Addison Lee Facebook page, tagging in the business and explaining what makes them special and how the prize could help them adapt to the current circumstances.
Wesley Bishop, Addison Lee’s commercial director, said: “Small businesses are the lifeblood of London’s economy – family-run restaurants, specialist retailers and neighbourhood professional services all help make for vibrant high streets across the capital. As a business that’s supported London for 45 years, we want to help these pillars of the economy with Give A Lift. Hopefully, we can provide some support to companies looking to adapt in this challenging environment and keep our high streets thriving.”
Nominations must be made by 1 December and will be reviewed by a panel of Addison Lee judges, with winners chosen on the strength of entry.
The private hire and courier company has also recently announced a new winter partnership with Centrepoint as the youth homelessness charity reveals that at least 4,000 young people are likely to be facing homelessness in London this Christmas.
The partnership sees Addison Lee directly donate £20,000 to Centrepoint and appeal to passengers to support the partnership through their own donations. Later this year the company will deliver presents to homeless young people in hostels and donate rides to help Centrepoint staff get to work over the Christmas holidays.
Lucy Coleman, Centrepoint’s senior corporate fundraising manager, commented: “At Centrepoint we’ve worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to ensure homeless young people get the support they need. Now, with an uncertain Christmas period approaching we expect to be busier than ever, so the support from Addison Lee couldn’t have come at a more vital time.”
