Hope you don't leave
Here's how to go about requesting a PAC (Port Authorisation Code) Code.
1. Ask an Agent for your PAC code (they will reply to most cases within 24 hours)
2. Give said PAC code to your new network, tell them you want to keep your old number.
3. Wait a few days and Voila! all set to go!

Hi, wonder if anyone can help me... I ordered a PAC code thinking it was something else, but I definitely don't want to leave giff gaff! Just today I topped up £10 hoping to get the £10 goody bag, but it didn't seem to come through, so I requested a PAC code thinking it would help (not really sure why). Does the fact that I got a PAC code mean I have to leave giff gaff?
No, don't worry.
Using the PAC is a two stage process, and unless you give the code to another provider, nothing will happen and the PAC will expire unused
