The competition linked to our four-month long #BristolGumdrop campaign has been won by Michelle Dixon. Michelle collected a gumdrop from Runners Need/Cycle Surgery, one of the 10 Broadmead shops who supported the campaign by handing them out, and used it to deposit her used chewing gum in one of four special bins placed around The Podium. The winning gumdrop was drawn on Saturday 25th July by Nick, a member of the street cleansing team, who have all been very pleased to see a reduction in the amount of gum needing to be removed. Michelle hopes to buy a house later this year and has chosen to have £500 vouchers from Debenhams as she will need furniture and homeware. The campaign, which aimed to reduce gum litter while giving gum a second life as wellies, frisbees, guitar picks, Americano mugs etc, was organised by the Broadmead BID team in association with Gumdrop Ltd and Litterarti.
“As manager of an independent retailer on the edge of the BID area, I really appreciate the work the BID team does to help promote all its businesses, especially events like the annual Easter trail that encourage shoppers to explore the whole area.”
