Find out how Yummy Pubs is using the free Toggle service to help provide for vulnerable people during the Coronavirus pandemic

Gift card platform Toggle has made its service free for operators for the duration of the coronavirus lockdown. Toggle has already been used to set up a free pizza delivery service for NHS workers in London, while restaurants and pubs switching to takeaway operations are setting up gift cards allowing users to ‘Pay it Forward’ for meals and groceries for those needing them. Any business can now access Toggle at usetoggle.com, using the promo code FUTUREFIT, to quickly set up a bespoke, branded gift card webshop free of charge.

At the Wiremill pub in East Grinstead, Surrey, operator Yummy Pubs has set up a £10 Toggle gift card which sends a meal to someone self-isolating due to the virus. Yummy Pubs director Tim Foster said: “People can nominate their family or friends, and we’re also asking the community to tell us where meals are needed - for example, we have an 89-year-old self-isolating lady living near the pub who has no family.  We’re providing gastropub quality meals which our staff have volunteered to deliver – we’re making no money but we’re keeping the pub going.”
