BIRA offer £1,000 cash in members’ prize draw for winner to spend on anything

A GRAND is up for grabs at the British Independent Retailers Association where one lucky member is in line for the prize they can spend on anything they wish.

Open to all retail members of the association, the competition is being run by BIRA and their insurance partners Towergate Insurance.
All current members, and any who join before December 2019, have to do is provide their insurance details to BIRA’s Cost & Cover Comparison service, and one lucky winner will be drawn out to take the £1,000 prize.
Anyone who sends their details in September will get three entries into the prize draw, with two for people who take part in October and one for November entries.
“We wanted to create a competition for retailers to take part in, with a really significant prize,” said BIRA CEO Andrew Goodacre, “it’s not an easy time for some independent retail businesses, so £1,000 to spend as they wish will be a real help.
“Whether they want to purchase some more stock for their business, clear off the next few bills, get that weekend away booked or have an extra-special Christmas this year, it’s entirely up to them.”
BIRA work with more than 6,000 independent retailers of all sizes and their Cost & Cover Comparison service is quick to complete with each member’s details then checked against a panel of leading insurers with the most suitable combination of cover and cost. Retailers will then receive an insurance report which they’ll be able to use to get the right cover for their business, with no obligation to buy.
Alison Wild, marketing business partner at Towergate Insurance, added: “The Cost & Cover comparison service has been exclusively designed for BIRA members. It’s a simple process so retailers need to just fill in the details on the online form and we’ll do the leg work.
“We’re really excited to offer BIRA members this service as well as the opportunity to win £1,000.”
