For our friends and supporters in Northern Ireland who are able to avail of the current High Street 'Spend Local' Scheme, why not treat yourself and spend your voucher with Ulster Historical Foundation?
Like many other organisations and business, the Foundation has also been greatly affected by the pandemic and any support you may be able to give, little or large, will be greatly appreciated.
PLEASE NOTE: The Foundation is a registered charity. Our offices do not have a retail unit, i.e. a shop that visitors can come to and browse stock in person. However, all of the Foundation’s publications are listed on our online store: www.booksireland.org.uk
Therefore, if you would like to use your Spend Local Card to buy some of our products (or services) we suggest the following steps:
- Go to www.booksireland.org.uk to browse through the products/services that you might wish to buy.
- Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address, and the titles you would like to purchase.
- We will make up your order and let you know when it is ready for collection.
- You can then pay at the office using your Spend Local Card when you come to collect your book(s).
NB: While we normally would be happy to take orders via telephone, because our staff are working hybrid hours (ie partially in the office and partially from home) we may be unable to prepare orders in time via this means. Thus we recommend you contact us by email.
Respecting the spirit of the scheme – to spend the voucher on the ‘high street’ and to support local businesses/charities – we hope you will be able to visit us and other local businesses in the Ards and North Down area, to make purchases with your Spend Local Card.
To help your money go a little further, for every £50 spent on any of the Foundation's services and products, we will give you a £10 voucher to spend in December to help ease your Christmas shopping burden!
Finally, if you are fortunate enough to be comfortably off financially, have no particular plan for how to use your Spend Local Card, and believe in the objectives of the Foundation, perhaps you might consider donating all or part of your £100 to the Foundation as a Charitable Gift.
