Dear Chamber Members,

We also have our Redemption Cards well stocked for you to redeem these offers. So if you would like to receive some Redemption Cards before the next chamber meeting, please let me know how many and where to post them to. It would be great if you could share these offers with your extended networks and please also pass on a Redemption Card to those people also.

 

If you have any questions please do let me know.

 

Many thanks to those that helped make this campaign happen!

 

Kind regards
