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. Also this season, there are Christmas cards depicting All Saint’s Church and one of the stained glass windows in the church.
Su Anstey, 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 in All Saint’s Church between John Lewis and the Market Place and get ahead in your Christmas preparations by getting your cards early.”
