PEOPLE have been reminded to spend their Scotland Loves Local gift cards while they're still valid. 

Time is running out to spend the £105 cards in Glasgow, which almost 85,000 households were entitled to receive last year. 

Around £729,000 still remains to be spent by cardholders at eligible businesses across the city.

Cards remain valid for 12 months after activation, with most gift cards having been activated in August last year. 

Councillor Susan Aitken, leader of Glasgow City Council, said: "The Loves Local gift cards were successful in both supporting businesses in the city as they recovered from the pandemic and helping low-income Glasgow households during the cost-of-living crisis. 

"There is still time for households and businesses to benefit from this scheme, so those with a card should check their balance and businesses can still register."

The Scotland Loves Local gift cards can be used at 1600 sites in Glasgow and businesses can still register for the scheme.
