15. Once we have received notification of closure we will contact you by telephone to confirm delivery details. If you close the account before 2pm on a working day (Monday to Thursday) and we have been able to contact you before 2pm on that day then the Gift Card will be sent out that same day. Gift Cards are delivered by Royal Mail Special Delivery and should arrive before 1pm on the next working day and will need a signature upon arrival. If you close the account on a Friday we cannot guarantee Saturday delivery as Royal Mail does not deliver to all areas on Saturdays. If you do not wish to have the Gift Card sent for delivery the next day you can specify an alternative convenient date.

Charity Donations

This is because your guests have been informed that a proportion of their gift will go to your chosen charity.
