50p can make a difference

I’d like to let you know that the GiftRound team feel compelled to help in some way in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic. We’re experiencing an extraordinary time. And we need to pull together as a community and support one another.

We’ve decided to make a change to the way our fees work. To date, we’ve proudly been offering the GiftRound collection service for free but this week we’re making two changes:

1 - On Wednesday 18th March we adding an additional £1 fee to every contribution made into GiftRound collections.  100% of these £1's shall be donated to a UK charity working to support the most vulnerable people in our communities who’ve been affected by the Coronavirus.  We are working with Glasgow City Mission & Food Share and are open to work with any other charities.

We reduced that donation to 50p and added the option for our customer to opt out if they'd rather not donate at this time.

2 - On Thursday 19th March (12:00) we’re introducing a small 3% fee to all collections that choose a Bank Transfer.  This will allow us to continue to provide you with our much loved, top-notch service. (There won’t be a fee for an e-gift voucher.)

We believe the future of GiftRound lies in ‘the gift that gives again’. When we’re through the worst of the Conoravirus pandemic we’ll carefully select another worthy cause in our community that deserves a gift.
