Recognise a marvellous giffgaffer
Has one of our marvellous giffgaffers made a positive impact on your time with us? Why not let us know. You can either tell a lovely story about them in comments below or share it privately with us if you’re feeling a bit shy. Here’s a form to submit your story to us in private.
Bringing the community together
giffgaff is the only network run by you. From the start, it has been built with our members and has continued to evolve throughout the years. But some things don’t change. Our members are at the heart of everything we do. This is your community and you run it the way you want. We simply help you connect with other marvellous folks, creating new opportunities to have your say.
We want to celebrate you
We have always been looking for new, exciting ways to celebrate our members. In past, we’ve run yearly member awards which were a great way to recognise some of our top members but with the community expanding far and wide, we wanted to recognise our members’ contributions no matter where they are. So after reading around the forum and listening to your feedback, we’ve decided to roll out member celebrations throughout the year. You’ll see our members faces and their stories on our social media channels, blog and community, building up to an exciting piece for our 10th birthday in November. Oooh. The very first celebration will be next week, so watch this space.
There wouldn’t be a community without you, so we want you to tell us all of your favourite stories about amazing members who’ve gone above and beyond. We are no longer looking at a few winner categories like we used to because we think every single story is unique and worth celebrating. So if a member has simply made your day better, tell us about them. We’d love to hear from you. This thread will be open all year round so pop in any time.
Over and out,
Aggie and giffgaff team
My daughter, @auntied , if she hadn't badgered me into joining then I'd never have gotten to interact with some really nice people on here. So thank you Debbie
And @kath72 , who is so talented and creative and makes fantastic content for the forum. Her Homemade Christmas thread and now her Homemade Valentine's thread are strewn with ideas, she also shows step by step how to make things, and encourages everyone who takes part to post their own creations. Thank you Kath, you're a little forum star
There are many gaffers in the community who i realy respect. And also met personaly.
And would be a shame to single one out as they all have differant characters but with the same great respect from me.
Its a great idea you have come out with and hope you get many replys.
All the best Bob
A brilliant thread but as many have said there are lots of members who have made me laugh,cry,bang my head against a brick wall ,helped and many i have learn't from,they are all as important as each other and added something to my time on the forums.
So i would like to do my own shout out to them all

Some days we may have something sad or awful going on in our lives, and you come on here and someone makes you smile or says something to cheer you up, and it all seems rather special.
People we will probably never meet but yet make a big impact on our lives.
@geu42 that’s really kind of you to mention me here ... I’m flattered if I’ve made a positive impact in some small way
There are many lovely people on the community who make it a good place to be (and this thread isn’t about the ones who don’t)
For me those who have had the most positive impact have been those who were involved in the creative writing competition up until the original format was disbanded. In particular @polowoman who ran the show and was encouraging and positive to us all. She went above and beyond and she and others let me know that my writing was worth my time and was something others could enjoy. They gave me the confidence to persue getting some work published
So these are the marvellous members who have had a positive impact on my time in the community and beyond @polowoman @pd789 @auntied @creakynees (rip) @stressymess @essie112mm @frenchielove @dolly247
Those of you not with us as often or at all are missed
I get where the other members spring to your mind @kath72, for they are also held dearly in my heart and thinking, but dunno how you can equate me into the mix 🤔 Have a jolly Erik Dodging Friday, my friend ☺️ ....
My regards to He Who Shall Not Be Named x
