A scheme that was set-up last year in a plea to boost the High Street in Andover has been given the approval by Kit Malthouse, MP for North West Hampshire.

The approval comes after the signing up of Simplyhealth by the two bosses of the card.

Mr Malthouse said: “It was fantastic meeting the Lifestyle Card team in Andover recently. This initiative allows companies to obtain rewards for their employees at local shops and venues, benefiting both our hard-working community and boosting local business at the same time. Modern life can be stressful so I’m extremely pleased this scheme enables workers access to cheaper health and wellbeing services, helping to keep the community in good mental and physical shape.”

The card boosts over 200 associates for discounts all around Andover.

The team said: “We have been very fortunate with the support shown by Simplyhealth who have already distributed The Lifestyle Card to their employees, in the quest to help generate the town and support local businesses.”

“This great incentive plus the array of discounts from our health and wellbeing partners ties in with our vision to offer our members more affordable opportunities to meet their health needs.”
