Cliff's £389,651 For Charity

Home » News » Cliff's £389,651

During his 17 years as manager of the annual Cards For Good Causes Christmas card shop in our church, Cliff Darlington has sold cards and gifts to the value of £389,651 for over 30 charities. To mark his retirement and as a token of appreciation of his work, he was given a presentation at Sunday's morning service by the preacher, Arthur Sara. With a need for four volunteers and a manager every day to run the shop, Arthur estimated that Cliff had organised 2720 job slots during his 17 years in charge.
A surprised Cliff said, "It has been my pleasure. I have had a great team and met some wonderful people from the local churches and charities and made some new lifelong friends." Since the shop opened 30 years ago, £638,381 has been raised for the participating national and local charities. John Miskin will be the new manager when the shop reopens in November.
