Win a £1500 Wight Gift Card

A new Christmas competition has launched giving Islanders the chance to win a £1500 Wight Gift Card.

The Great Town and City Christmas Quiz is a national competition where places all around the UK and Ireland compete against each other for a chance of being crowned the brainiest Christmas shopping destination of 2020.

The Wight Gift Card is part of the award winning Town and City Gift Cardsprogramme active in over 50 towns and cities around the UK and Ireland.

The Wight Gift Card, sponsored by WightFibre, works like a local currency, with each gift card a pre-paid Mastercard that can be redeemed at registered businesses on the Isle of Wight, for online purchases and in stores, if open.

Shoppers can buy the card as a gift, and know that with a Wight Gift Card their recipient can choose their own selection from many of the Isle of Wight’s best-known brands and producers, on store or online, right across the Island.

The new gift card scheme follows on from recent shop local initiatives on the Island such as Fiver Fest and Let’s Buy Local and is available for customers to buy now for delivery from 24 November: in time for Christmas and the January sales.

To take part in the quiz, compete on behalf of the Isle of Wight and be in with a chance of winning the £1500 Wight Gift Card, brainy Islanders should visit The closing date for the competition is Friday 18 December.
