Charity begins at Christmas card shop
THE festive season got under way in Chesham when the Cards for Good Causes charity Christmas card shop was opened by the town mayor.
Opened by Noel Brown at The United Reformed Church on Saturday and staffed by a team of local volunteers, the pop-up shop is part of a network of 300 temporary shops run for Cards for Good Causes.
It represents more than 250 charities.
Shoppers can choose from hundreds of different Christmas cards, as well as traditional advent calendars and candles, wrapping paper, gift tags, napkins and stocking fillers.
Especially chosen for this season are some local Christmas card designs – View of St Mary’s Church, Chesham and Skaters at Chesham
Shop managers said: “Buying charity Christ- mas cards is one of the simplest ways to support good causes this festive season. Sales of the cards not only generate funds with which the charities can make a real difference, but also purchasing and sending them helps raise awareness of the vital work these charities do.”
It is open from 10am – 4pm until December 12 2016 at The United Reformed Church, High Street, Chesham.
