Deliveroo to give away free gift cards to Brits with festive names such as Holly

DELIVEROO is giving away free gift cards to lucky Brits but to be in with a chance of getting your hands on one you must have a festive sounding name.

The popular online delivery service is launching its first ever gift card and could be ideal for anyone looking for a last minute present.

With most of the country under restrictive measures due to the coronavirus pandemic, the demand for meal deliveries has increased as many restaurants have been forced to close under the tier system.

Available from December 18, the gift card can be purchased online or via the app and is sent in an e-gift card format, in denominations of £10.

So anyone stuck for a last minute present or even a Secret Santa gift has plenty of time to sort something out.

The card comes with a number of designs for the lucky recipient, including Christmas, Congratulations, Happy Birthday, or even as a simple thank you gift.

Deliveroo spokeswoman Arabella Jenkins said: “For many people the food they consume at Christmas is one of the main things they look forward to – and this year there are so many festive favourites from Pret’s legendary Christmas sandwich to Burger King’s Festive BBQ King and Pizza Hut’s Christmas Pizza.

“In a time where many people are unable to see their families and in what has been a catastrophic year for businesses in the hospitality industry, we want to encourage people to give the gift of food and drink.

“It’s a special treat for those receiving the gift, but also helps to continue to support our incredible restaurant partners across the festive period and beyond, because remember, a gift card isn’t just for Christmas! It’s the tastiest gift at any time of year.”

To mark the launch 500 lucky people can get their hands on one of the cash-filled cards by entering the Fortune Favours the Festive Name ballot.

But to be in with a chance you have to have one of the following festive names as your forename or surname:

Star / Starr 
Bell / Belle
Clement / Clementine

To enter you simply need to email [email protected] before midnight on December 20 sharing the below details to be in with a chance of winning a Deliveroo gift card with £10 credit ready for spending.

Your full name as per your Deliveroo account.
