Say hello to natty88

natty88 is one of giffgaff’s top legends, who is at the heart of everything we do. natty88 goes above and beyond to help others in true giffgaff style. Top job mate.

natty88 joined giffgaff back in 2013 after, believe it or not, finding a giffgaff SIM on the ground outside his house. And he’s been a true giffgaffer since then. Some might say it was love at first sight.

Natty has been on a very exciting journey with us, exploring the giffgaff community and educating himself on the best practices to give help.

“I’ve loved every minute of it as I find it’s a friendly and helpful place to be.” - natty88

Over the last 6 years Natty has solved over 3k member cases on the community. But he didn’t stop there. He’s also been an active member on our Facebook group and offers his support there. Now if that’s not going above and beyond. We don’t know what is.

Natty continues to help more and more folks every day and will always stick around to make sure every member leaves with a smile on their face. What a legend.

By reaching out and helping our members natty has made so many friendships along the way. He’s also managed to fund some lovely trips and fun days out with his family using the money he’s earnt via Payback.

Back in 2017 he even managed to put this money towards his wedding, which according to Natty, was the best way he’s ever spent his giffgaff Payback. How lovely is that?
