On Your Doorstep - 12 Days of Christmas Launches on the 1st December


To celebrate 4 years since the opening of our Skoda showroom at Conlig, during December we want to give something back to the people of North Down who have shown us incredible support.

We felt that with the current pandemic having a huge detrimental impact on small local businesses, we would like to try and bring as many of those businesses together in some way and at the same time provide some local support ourselves, as a thank you for the support we have received.

During December we will be running an on your doorstep social campaign based on the 12 days of Christmas to encourage people to support local. We will be running a series of competitions on our social pages with the prizes being from businesses within the North Down area, so I would encourage as many people as possible to follow us on Facebook and Instagram as there are some fantastic prizes to be won.

We will also be running a fun competition that will allow us to donate some food to Assisi which is the local charity literally on our doorstep, with the food being purchased from Cloud K Nine grooming and pet supplies in Newtownards.

This year, due to Covid19 restrictions, Assisi haven’t been able to hold any of their usual income generating activities and have had to close their shops for several months and now again for another couple of weeks. Financially, it has been a very challenging and difficult year.

They are asking for all our support to help make this Christmas really special at the sanctuary. Should it be blankets, toys or towels; food or bedding for any of our animals; anything from their Amazon Wish List or cash donations that you can make online at - whatever you can give will directly support the vital care for their very special animals that really need all the help they can get.

The months of closure have had a major financial impact on all small local businesses and we would urge the general public to think before they shop and were possible support local as these businesses depend on local support to survive and keep people in our area employed. When making a local purchase or availing of a service it also really helps to spread the word on social by sharing and leaving a review. Google reviews are also a great way of helping build awareness of these great businesses on our doorstep.


Below is a list of local businesses that we have involved in our, on your doorstep campaign but off course there are many others that would greatly appreciate the support of the local people also. These businesses like ourselves have adapted brilliantly to the challenges presented by the pandemic by creating a safe environment for their staff and customers but also by offering online and take away services to meet the changing needs of their customers.
