A Nelson building society's campaign to encourage people to make the most of independent services and stores has gone down a treat over the Christmas period, with an array of businesses getting involved.

Marsden Building Society’s ‘Keep It Local’ campaign was a huge success in creating awareness of local businesses across the festive period, with the campaign - which urged people to shop local and use independent stores in the run up to Christmas - running throughout December on their Facebook page, featuring prizes from local businesses across Lancashire.

“We were delighted with the response to the campaign, we received some fantastic prizes from local businesses and we loved working with them throughout the campaign," said Rob Pheasey, Chief Executive at Marsden Building Society. “Our branch footprint supports a personal connection on the high street which remains important to our members and to us so we’re passionate about celebrating our high streets.”

Companies who took part in the 'Keep It Local' campaign included the ACE Centre, Bowland Brewery, Burnley Football Club, The Fence Gate, Going Dutch, Live Like The Boy, and Stringers Lytham, with a range of great gifts on offer.
