Char­ity be­gins at Christ­mas card shop

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.
