CHOOSE HOW YOU MOVE
Visitor’s to Art in the Park festival had the chance to win free shopping vouchers if they choose to walk, cycle or use public transport when travelling to the event, courtesy of Royal Priors Shopping.
As part of the ongoing Choose How You Move Leamington campaign, users of the free app-based reward programme that visited Art in the Park on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 August and log their green travel were entered into a prize draw to win a £25 Royal
Priors Shopping voucher; two vouchers were up for grabs. The BetterPoints app is available for free download now through the App store and Play store, and local users will be automatically entered into the local Choose How You Move Leamington programme.
The programme – which ran until the end of October 2019 - aimed to encourage anyone who lives, works, shops in or visits Leamington Spa to log their green travel in return for BetterPoints that are redeemable on the high street in a range of independent and big brand shops, or can be donated to charity.
Additionally, the programme seeks to support the aims of Coventry and Warwickshire’s Year of Wellbeing partnership with those taking part in the scheme also benefitting from a boost to their health and fitness by monitoring their levels of physical activity through the app, even earning virtual medals as they hit their fitness and travel milestones.
