Apparently I need to top up to be able to send a long text message. When I ring the number I am asked for a voucher code. I don't have one, I have never done this before. Can't I just use my debit card?

Standard texts of 160 characters including spaces are included in the goodybag, but longer texts are sent as mms 16p so you need airtime credit, you can use your debit card but minimum top up is £10 here https://giffgaff.com/top-up

you can also top up over the phone with a paper voucher (o2/giffgaff voucher) that you buy from shops/supermarkets/garages and just call 43430 to top up your phone
