Newquay Tretherras Sixth Form (NT6) has launched a brand new discount and lifestyle card that takes advantage of the great offers from businesses such as, Blue Inc, Velotti Bike Shop, Studds, Watershed, Fresh, Bank Street Grill, Noodle Kitchen, Company Salon, Disco Beads and Fistral Surf Diner.
The card has been created as a bonus offering for Tretherras students who continue their education in Newquay, to benefit from deals offered by their local stores.
To launch the event Fistral Surf Diner invited the Tretherras Sixth Formers to sample the menu, and over 30 students were welcomed into the funky American styled diner where they enjoy soft drinks and homemade cupcakes, whilst taking in the stunning view from the balcony that overlooks the Newquay bay.
Mrs Julie Root, Sixth Form Learning Mentor and inventor of the card said, ‘We have been overwhelmed with the generous support offered from local businesses. We have even had shops call up asking if they could be part of it.’
As well as local shops, large franchises and retails have jumped on board also offering student discounts and deals. Students can use their discount card at larger chains such as Top Shop, Top Man, New Look, Burton, Dorothy Perkins, Peacocks, Pizza Express, McDonalds and Burger King.
Mrs Root added, ‘We want to thank all the businesses that have got involved and offered a discount. We welcome other shops who would like be included or have special deals for our students.’
Francoise Cole, proprietor of Fistral Surf Diner explained, ‘As a local business it’s great that we can work together. We need people to use their small, local businesses all year round and it is great that local students, as well as benefiting from their shops, can also support them.’
The NT6 student card is only valid to students enrolled at the Newquay Tretherras Sixth Form. Any local retailer wishing to be included is welcome to contact the Tretherras Sixth Form on 01637 872080 and ask to speak to Mrs Julie Root.
