We are sorry to inform you that we have not been selected as an outlet for the ever popular Cards for Good Causes Christmas cards this year.
The company has been very badly affected by the COVID-19 lockdowns. In order to survive and build again for the future, they have had to streamline this year and will only be supplying just over a quarter of the shops that they did in 2019.
We know many of our residents and visitors really appreciate the choice offered and the opportunity to support a wide range of very deserving charities.
Cards for Good Causes runs as a not-for-profit, so give all the proceeds back to their charities. This is at least 70p in every pound from their card sales, less the VAT payable on the amount retained by CFGC. The retained 30% covers CFGC's costs of running the temporary charity Christmas card shops.
In the last 10 years alone, you have helped Cards for Good Causes raise over £40 million for UK charities
I am pleased to say that you can still purchase a selection of charity Christmas cards online from the Cards for Good Causes website www.cardsforcharity.org.uk. We are hoping that we will be able to stock the cards again next year.
