Card stall is a cut above

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Family Announcements -

The High Sher­iff of Kent has used his cer­e­mo­nial sword to of­fi­cially open the Cards for Good causes char­ity stall in Can­ter­bury.

For more than 20 years, vol­un­teers have manned the Christ­mas card pop-up shop in Na­sons where prof­its from the sales of their cards go to sup­port around 45 char­i­ties, in­clud­ing Kent Air Am­bu­lance, the Kent MS Ther­apy Cen­tre and Age UK Can­ter­bury.

Since the stand was opened, tens of thou­sands of pounds have been raised for good causes.

The char­ity has fes­tive card stands all over the coun­try and Can­ter­bury’s is the big­gest in Kent.

Vol­un­teer man­ager Janet Dal­rym­ple said: “It is only such a suc­cess be­cause of the hard work of our team of 40 vol­un­teers and the sup­port of Na­sons.”

The pop-up shop is open ev­ery day ex­cept Sun­day, from 9.30am to 4.30pm, un­til De­cem­ber 16.
