Launched on December 3, it was designed to encourage people to share their love for Kirkcaldy by giving the gift of choice and supporting local businesses across the town centre at the same time.

Councillor Neil Crooks, convener of Kirkcaldy area committee, said: "I am delighted with the initial success of the gift card and would continue to encourage everyone to support local businesses by buying a Kirkcaldy gift card not only for Christmas but for any occasion.”

The gift card can currently be redeemed across more than 20 town centre businesses.
