It's now easier than ever to support The Myton Hospices with new gift card scheme

LOCAL hospice, which provides care and support for people, and their families, living with a terminal illness in Coventry and Warwickshire, is the latest charity nationwide to sign up to the first multi-retailer gift card that can be used exclusively in charity shops.

The Charity Shop Gift Card has been developed by Gift Card CIC, a social enterprise, in partnership with the Charity Retail Association (CRA).

Cards will be sold and accepted in The Myton Hospices’ 23 shops, which help raise money to cover the cost of running the charity’s hospices in Warwick, Rugby and Coventry.

Cath D’Eath, retail development manager at The Myton Hospices, said: “Whilst many people are willing to buy second-hand, gifting pre-loved goods can be tricky but the gift card is a great way to give the gift of choice whilst buying sustainably and supporting a local charity.”

The single-load gift cards themselves will be recyclable and compostable and will be on sale at all

The Myton Hospices shops, online at www.thecharityshopgiftcard.co.uk, and through supermarkets and other major retailers in 2022.

The Charity Shop Gift Card is a member of Social Enterprise UK, and the Gift Card and Voucher Association.

Lee Fellows, Managing Director of The Charity Shop Gift Card, said: “The gift card market is huge and growing, and central to our aim is to come up with a nationally-accepted, multi-retailer scheme that allows charity shops to tap into that for the first time. This is a gift card for good.”
