The history of York Gift Card

Since launching in 2019, the York Gift Card has rapidly grown to become one of the largest of its kind in the UK. The scheme has been successful in locking spend into York’s wealth of businesses, driving footfall and contributing to a successful local economy.

The artwork was commissioned from local artist Jonathon Williams.

How can it be used?

With Christmas round the corner, the York Gift Card is the perfect gift for employees, customers, and corporate partners since the UK Government’s Trivial Benefits scheme allows an organisation to give their staff a non-cash gift of up to £50 with no tax or National Insurance to pay. Firms can use this scheme more than once per year as long as it isn’t part of the employee’s regular salary or contract. Physical cards and digital formats are available.

Doing your bit…

The York Gift Card is a reward with true purpose and is a great way to meet your corporate social responsibility goals. Visit the Town and City Gift Cards website for corporate orders and more information.
