The Backing Birmingham scheme has been extended until the end of December. So now you can enjoy special deals with local independent retailers on everything from haircuts to groceries, fashion to motor spares. With hundreds of retailers signed up already, and more joining every day, it’ll really help make this time of year more affordable.
Shout about it! Tell us about the people and places that make your community a better place. It might be a local shop, someone at the local community centre or a place of special interest. Use the comments box to tell us something good about where you live.
Follow Backing Birmingham on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with the latest news.
