COMPETITION ALERT: Give Something Away Day #GivingItAway

Trending on Gumtree
Click here for more

July 15th marks Give Something Away Day. We're paying it forward this July: if you give something away for free on Gumtree, you can enter our competition to win a £300 cash prize.


Did you know that we have on average 400,000 searches for ‘free’ items on Gumtree every month!* It’s always been a popular category of ours, but our community has turned to freebies more and more over the last two years, as the cost of living crisis has gripped the UK and many people are struggling to make ends meet. So much so, that food banks have become a prominent part of our national life, and given that over the last three years, overall prices are up 20% and food prices are up 30%, this isn’t a huge surprise.**

We know that many of us have been both supportive of, as well as reliant on, our local communities, families and friends, in times of hardship. And these difficult times are no different. So what better time to rally our users than Give Something Away Day, which falls on the 15th July.

We’re asking each of you to give away one item for free this July, and we’re ready to pay it forward when you do. Every user who lists an item in our Freebies category this July (and includes a hashtag we can track) will be entered in a prize draw to win a £300 cash prize! (Not to mention that Good Find Feeling you’ll get from helping out a neighbour, that’s something money can’t buy).

🟢 How to enter 🟢

➡️ List one item on Gumtree in our ‘freebies’ category over the month of July.

➡️ Include #GivingItAway in the description.

Entries open from 01.07.24 – 31.07.24. Open only to UK residents who are over 18. Entries to be valid must list an item for sale in the Freebies category on Gumtree. com and in the listing’s description include the hashtag #GivingItAway. The competition is not associated with Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. One winner, to be chosen at random, will win a £300 cash prize. Full T&Cs apply - click here for more button above.
