Visitors to Newport could be handed £20 to mark Small Business Saturday

Visitors to Newport city centre tomorrow could be handed £20.

To mark Small Business Saturday, Newport Now Business Improvement District (BID) will be giving out 100 of its gift cards in the city centre.

The gift cards – which can only be spent at participating businesses in the city centre – will be in special ‘Load This Card’ envelopes.

Follow the instructions on the envelope to load the card with money and then gift it to a loved one.

However, five of the 100 cards being handed out will each already be loaded with £20.

These envelopes will contain presentation cards saying ‘Congratulations! You’ve Won’.

Newport Now BID manager Kevin Ward said: “The 100 gift cards will be handed out in the city centre by the BID’s Street Ambassadors between 10am and 3pm.

“If you are handed one by our blue-uniformed Ambassadors then make sure you check whether it contains a £20 gift card.

“Small Business Saturday is all about supporting local businesses – and that is precisely what our gift cards do.”
