#10to1m | From £10 to £1 million

What effect would switching £10 to a local business have on the North Devon economy?

If one person does it, that would inject £10 back locally. If 100 people did it, that be £1,000. What if 100,000 of the 162,000 people in North Devon Torridge switched, that would make £1 million.

We’ve launched the #10to1m campaign to encourage as many people as possible in North Devon to switch more spending to local businesses.
