There are more than 100 businesses that accept the Cheltenham Gift Card and we asked them what they thought of the programme –

Mel from Toys to Grow in The Regent Arcade said: ‘Really easy to use. I would recommend other businesses accepting the gift card because it is so easy to use and if it supports Cheltenham and gets people shopping locally I am all for that.  If they didn’t have the Gift Card they would have shopped somewhere else. ‘

Ben from Turtle Bay said: ‘Easy to use. I would recommend it, good advertisement. Customers can use the card pretty much anywhere. A wide variety of places to go. It encourages people to come to Cheltenham and spend their money in your business’

Sally from Cosy Club Cheltenham in The Brewery Quarter said: ‘Easy to use and would recommend to other businesses. I love that it is specific to Cheltenham’

Karrina from Vinegar Hill on High Street said: ‘ It is nice to help the High Street and encourage people to spend’
