In November last year we made it even easier for Lambeth Council staff to help keep money in Brixton. We launched Payroll Local. The first of its kind in the U.K. The scheme allows Lambeth Staff to receive part of their salary in electronic Brixton Pounds (B£e) and receive 10% extra. Since it’s launch we’re pleased to say that more Brixton Pounds have been spent and the number is continuing to grow.
Derrick Anderson, Chief Executive of Lambeth Council has now signed up to the scheme and has already received part of his salary in B£e. Watch him in this video with the fabulous Soner from Phonenix café showing you how its done.
So its as easy as that. With over 100 (108 in fact!) local independent businesses now accepting B£e there couldn’t be a better time to sign up. If you’re a Lambeth Council employee, sign up to the scheme here - it won’t take more than a few minutes.
