THE Moray Loves Local gift card which will be accepted by a number of businesses is now available to buy online.

Around 80 businesses in Moray have signed up to accept the card and a further 50 are in the process of completing registration.

Earlier this year Moray businesses were encouraged to sign up to accept the Moray Loves Local gift card, a scheme being delivered across the country by Scotland’s Towns Partnership (STP) in partnership with Perth-based fintech specialist Miconex.

Chair of the Moray Economic Partnership, Cllr Graham Leadbitter, said: "The number of Moray businesses signed up to accept the Moray Loves Local gift card has exceeded our expectations and it’s great to see so many taking part.

“It shows the appetite is there from businesses to try new ways of driving up spending in our local economy so I hope consumers react equally as enthusiastically.

“Whether it’s a gift for a friend or family member this unique-to-Moray card is a great way to show someone they’re appreciated, all while helping to boost our economic recovery from the pandemic. A win for everyone!”

The first year of costs is being met by the Scottish Government as part of its £10 million support for the nationwide campaign. There are no registration costs for businesses and payments are processed as part of the Mastercard network.

Cards will be posted to customers when purchased online and are available to buy here.
