Cards for Good Causes charity Christmas card shop opens in St Matthew’s church on Wednesday 24 October.
Monday to Friday 10.00am – 4.00pm
Saturday from 10.00am – 1.00pm
The festive season gets under way in Redhill when the Cards for Good Causes charity Christmas card shop opens in St. Matthew’s Church.
Hugh Jones, Shop Manager for Cards for Good Causes says: “Buying charity Christmas cards is one of the simplest ways to support good causes this festive season and we stock one of the widest ranges of Christmas cards anywhere. The proceeds from every card or product sold make a vital contribution to the work of the charities that we partner. Come and find us at St.Matthew’s Church and get ahead in your Christmas preparations by getting your cards early.”
Shoppers will be able to choose from hundreds of different Christmas card designs, as well as traditional advent calendars and candles, wrapping paper, gift tags, napkins and stocking fillers.
Staffed by a team of local volunteers, the Redhill pop-up shop is part of a network of more than 300 temporary shops run by Cards for Good Causes, the UK’s largest charity Christmas card organisation. The shop will be open until Saturday 15 December.
CFGC sells cards on behalf of over 250 national and local charities including Cancer Research UK, Barnardo’s, NSPCC, Alzheimer’s Society and RNLI. In most shops at least 25 charities are represented.
In the past ten years, charities have received more than £40 million from Cards for Good Causes, representing at least 70p in every pound, out of which the charities pay for the production and distribution of their Christmas cards and any VAT.
