Cliff Darlington: November 2015
The Cards for Good Causes Multi Charity Christmas Card Shop is now open in our church. It will be open from Wednesday 4th November to Thursday 17th December from 10am to 4pm, every day except Sundays, staffed by my willing team of volunteers from charities and local churches. As well as Christmas card design from 33 national and 4 local charities, there is also a variety of Christmas goods such as paper, gifts and decorations.
Cards for Good Causes (CFGC) pays the participating charities (or their trading subsidiaries) at least 70p in the pound from their card sales, less the VAT payable on the amount retained by CFGC. The retained amount covers CFGC's costs of running the temporary charity Christmas card shops. In addition to these costs, the participants have to pay for the production and distribution of their cards. CFCG is the trading company of the 1959 group of charities (Registered Charity No. 249039).
