The Cards for Good Causes Charity Christmas Card Shop opens in the Church on Saturday 26th October at 10am. It will be open Monday to Saturday from 10am – 4pm, until Friday 20th December.
Reporting on his first year as manager, John Miskin wrote, "With a team of 48 volunteers, made up of people from the various charities and from the church, as well as 5 duty managers we clocked up 618 hours working in the shop and in that time, we sold £14,196.95 of cards and gifts. Without these wonderful people giving their time we would not function.
Although the sale of the cards and gifts across the UK has fallen over the last 7 years Cards for Good Causes still raised over £4.5 million for the charities.These charities range from national charities, such as Age UK, Cancer Research UK and RNLI, to local charities, like Florence Nightingale Hospice and Scanappeal."
