Cards for Good Causes has got the festive season underway in Wakefield with its pop-up charity Christmas card shop in Wakefield Library, Wakefield One, Burton Street. The shop will raise thousands of pounds for local and national charities in the run-up to Christmas with its wide selection of cards, as well as seasonal gifts and products.
Staffed by a team of local volunteers, the Wakefield pop-up shop is part of a network of more than 300 temporary shops run by Cards for Good Causes, the UK’s largest multi-charity Christmas card organisation. It represents more than 250 charities including Cancer Research UK, Barnardo’s, NSPCC, Alzheimer’s Society and RNLI as well as a number of local charities such as Wakefield Hospice and Yorkshire Cancer Research.
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.
Carole Snowden, 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. What is more, a higher proportion of the proceeds go to the charity compared to buying charity Christmas cards through most high street retailers, meaning a greater contribution to their vital work. Come and find us in the Library and get your cards early.”
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.
Shop Opening Hours:
Monday to Saturday 10am to 4pm
Wakefield Library, Wakefield One, Burton Street, Wakefield, WF1 2DD
