That Time Of Year Again

Home » News » That Time Of Year

TV celebrity Gloria Hunniford says, ""It's that time of year again and Cards for Good Causes is a great way to support charities at Christmas and with such a wonderful choice of cards, there's something to suit everyone."
And Cards for Good Causes will be opening its shop in our Buckingham Street Methodist Church from Wednesday 4th November until Thursday 17th December. During that time it will be open every day except Sunday from 10am — 4pm.
Shop manager Cliff Darlington said, "For the 28th year the shop will be selling cards for thirty seven national and local charities. This year our four local charities are Florence Nightingale Hospice, Chiltern Air Ambulance, Scanner Appeal and Brendan Care Home." Each one of these will featured in our future news items. Cliff will be supported, as usual, by a team of volunteers from local churches and charities.
In the past five years, charities have received more than £20 million from Cards for Good Causes — representing at least 70p in every pound out of which charities had to pay for the production and distribution of their Christmas cards and any VAT. As the UK's largest multi-charity Christmas card organization, they have around 300 temporary shops from Cornwall to Scotland. Their aims are simple — to offer the widest choice of charity cards and keep raising as much money as possible each year for the charities.
