“This initiative has a dual purpose in supporting local businesses as well as helping local families in getting a discount on their Christmas purchases.”

€300,000 has been allocated for the scheme with long queues to pick up the coupons forming outside the Carpa Municipal on the fairground site on Avenida Felipe VI.

To qualify, people should have been registered on the local padron before March 14 and they need to bring along identification.
