As the end of the school year draws near, busy parents are racking their brains to work out what to give their child’s teacher as a thank-you gift. Chocolates or a candle, just like last year? Or, if they’re lucky enough to live in a town or city which has a Gift Card, they can give the teacher the gift of choice!

If you’re a place manager, this time of year offers a great opportunity to promote your Gift Card programme. With denominations ranging from £10 to £200, the Card can be marketed as a gift from an individual child or a whole-class group.

And not just for teachers. Teaching assistants, Brownie and Cub leaders, music tutors, sports coaches – there are so many people that the parents and kids want to thank.
