Congratulations to Vincent Hardware, who won Local Yokel’s #LekkerLocal competition for the month of June, as voted for by the very community in which they serve.


Local Yokel is an organisation that shines a light on local businesses in the East London region, and helps consumers to be more aware of how they invest their money and where it ends up. They aim to keep the money that is spent in the local community, which boosts the local economy and helps local businesses to thrive.

The criteria for entering #LekkerLocal is simple: if your organisation is owned and operated from East London (and the Border Kei Region) and offers products and services that directly benefit the LOCAL economy, you can become a member of Local Yokel and join the competition.
