No Christmas party – no panic – you can still support local

No Christmas party – no panic – you can still support local

Christmas is coming and while we may not be able to celebrate with colleagues in the traditional sense, Waterford Chamber are asking business owners to reward their staff by gifting them Waterford Shop Local Gift Vouchers in lieu of the traditional staff night out.  

“Employees have had to adapt to new challenges and in many cases work harder this year and where possible it should be rewarded, according to Danette Connolly, President of Waterford Chamber.

“Sadly it is looking like Christmas nights out will be null and void this year but that doesn’t mean you can’t reward your staff and do your bit for the local economy. All over the country, companies are choosing Shop Local Gift Vouchers as an alternative to a night out this year and we want our business community to do the same.

“The Waterford Shop Local Gift Vouchers can be redeemed in over 160 outlets across Waterford City and Tramore and are a great way to ensure the money is spent locally, unlike other vouchers. Whether it is weekly shopping, dining out, gifts or holidays, we’ve got it covered with our redemption partners.

“Now more than ever, we need to make every effort to boost our local economy. Businesses are in dire need of support and what a difference the vouchers will make once everything starts to reopen again.”

Not only that, but you can obtain up to €500 per employee tax free in the year, so you can potentially reward staff with a Christmas bonus and make a contribution as an alternative to a Christmas party and save money!

Send your order to Waterford Chamber and they will deliver it directly to your door in a matter of days.

The vouchers come in denominations of €10, €25 and €50 so any amount can be catered for.

This is your chance to make a difference this Christmas. Call Waterford Chamber now on 051 872639 or email

The Waterford Shop Local Gift Vouchers are a joint initiative between Waterford Chamber, Waterford City & County Council and Waterford Business Group.
