TO encourage people across the region to back local businesses, Fife is soon to have its own local gift card.

Fife Council is supporting the rollout of the new Scotland Loves Local Gift Card - helping power the region’s economic fightback from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Cllr Altany Craik said: “Fife Council is pleased to support the Scotland Loves Local Gift Card. The Gift Card has the potential to drive significant spending across the region - helping secure jobs and build a more sustainable, vibrant future for communities and people.

“We encourage all businesses and merchants to sign up to receive payments via the Fife Loves Local Gift Card - this is the perfect way for people to show their support for all that their local businesses have done for them since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.”
