Addison Lee is today promising to ‘Give A Lift’ to ten of London’s best small businesses – with a competition to win one of ten business accounts each with £500 of free journeys or courier deliveries to help them during these challenging times.
On its’ Facebook page, Addison Lee wants to hear from London businesses and their customers about what makes them special and how the prize could help them adapt to the current circumstances. Whether it’s a local florist looking to branch out into deliveries, a baker with an oven-ready plan to move online, or a high street solicitor weighing up the case for getting staff safely into the office, Addison Lee wants to support small businesses in the capital.
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.”
To win a £500 prize of free journeys or deliveries, Addison Lee is asking for nominations from businesses within the M25 between November 18 to 1 December. Nominations from friends, family and customers of businesses are also welcomed.
Nominations can be submitted by following Addison Lee’s Facebook page, tagging the business in question and leaving a recommendation – telling Addison Lee what makes the business different and how the account would be used. Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of Addison Lee judges, with winners chosen on the strength of entry. Full terms and conditions for ‘Give A Lift’ can be found on the Addison Lee website.
Throughout the pandemic, Addison Lee has been supporting London, its people and its businesses. In April, the company launched the ‘Donate A Ride’ initiative, offering over 9,000 free rides to the capital’s NHS workers, and in May, it became the first major car operator to install screens across its standard fleet to protect drivers and passengers.
With a focus on safety, Addison Lee is also the travel and courier choice for London’s corporates. Addison Lee supplies 80% of the FTSE 100, and operates London’s largest same day courier fleet.
