Varii Picture

Thriving Bristol based promotional staffing agency is the latest business to accept the Bristol pound. The Keynsham based agency registered with the Bristol pound at the beginning of this month as part of a focus to give back to the Bristol community.

Varii is a young business which started in 2014 through the support of Prince’s Trust Bristol. Since launching, the agency has provided promotion and event staff to a number of well-known brands within Bristol and the surrounding areas, including Bristol Credit Union, which provides fairer banking for local people, and Bristol Leaflet Delivery.

Simon Porter, Managing Director at Varii says, “the Bristol Pound is a great way to support our exciting business sector. Bristol is really unique; it’s vibrant, creative and has a strong sense of community, which is sometimes lost in large cities. We’ve got our roots here, and it’s important that we take steps to help support independent businesses and the local communities they serve.”

To celebrate Varii’s commitment to the Bristol Pound, they have agreed to provide a 10% discount on all bookings paid using Bristol Pounds.

Additionally, if you’re based in Bristol and you would like to become part of their promotions and events team then you can register with them directly through their website.
