Lean in Newy: Complete Challenges & Earn Points to Redeem at Local Businesses This Christmas

| | ,

Have you heard about the Lean In Newy app? It’s an innovative online platform where residents living in the Newcastle and surrounding areas sign up to be Lean in Newy members and earn points by taking challenges like helping out in their neighbourhood, volunteering for charities or supporting local businesses. 

Once members have completed several challenges and built up their points, they can then go shopping online through the Lean in Newy mobile and web apps to purchase vouchers for discounts at local businesses. 

The challenges range from visiting local spots, subscribing to the What’s On event calendar, learning about dual naming in Muluubinba – Newcastle, and even creating chalk drawings to contribute to a Street Gallery.

Lean In

As it’s been a difficult year for both local businesses and our general community in Newcastle, City of Newcastle has developed an initiative to encourage ‘buy local’ but also giving back to the community this Christmas.

There’s a range of Christmas challenges. These include helping local community organisations including donating gifts for specific communities, volunteering to serve Christmas dinner at the Foreshore for our rough sleepers, or donating non-perishable items.

There’s also fun Christmas activities you can do with your family including decorating your house with Christmas lights and submitting it to the Newy with Kids Christmas Lights Trail.

Once you’ve amassed a number of points, you can redeem points for vouchers to use at local businesses. There are heaps of local businesses to choose from including cafes, restaurants, groceries, beauty, health, fitness, entertainment and attractions. You can even make donations to local charities.

 You can present your voucher in store by showing your Lean in Newy app (similar to Entertainment Book app), or you can provide the unique voucher number for online or over the phone orders/delivery services.

Get the Lean in Newy app to start redeeming local rewards around our city. It’s available to all residents living in the City of Newcastle and surrounding LGAs, including Lake Macquarie, Port Stephens, Maitland and Cessnock.

You can download from the App Store or Google Play Store.
