The 100% Local Christmas Challenge sets a challenge to local residents to purchase 100% of their Christmas needs from local businesses. Its aim is to bring more sales to local businesses and to support local jobs.
It was initially launched in 2011 and is an initiative of Seath Holswich MP and Trevor Ruthenberg MP (Member for Kallangur). It is supported by Pine Rivers Chamber of Commerce and Kallangur and Districts Business Association.
The 2012 100% Local Christmas Challenge was launched by The Hon Jann Stuckey MP (Minister for Tourism, Major Events, Small Business and Commonwealth Games) at Lawnton Country Markets.
The Challenge will be run again in 2013 and we are looking at ways to expand it further to increase its effectiveness. You can register your business now for the 2013 Challenge by completing the form below.
