|Multi Charity Christmas Card Shop Returning To Putney|
With over 28 different charities including 3 local to SW15
St Mary’s Church, Putney will be selling Charity Christmas Cards once again with a selection from over 28 different Charities as well as cards from many local charities including The Royal Hospital for Neuro-Disability, Shooting Star CHASE and Trinity Hospice.
The Cards for Good Causes shop will be open from 29 October until 17 December (Monday – Saturday, 10.00am – 4.30pm in St Mary’s Church, Putney High Street, Putney. They shall also be opening on three Sundays (27/11, 4/12 &11/12) from 1.00pm – 5.00pm.
Many of the volunteers who man the shop have been involved for years and come from the local community and charities involved and are very welcoming and helpful. Their continued support and enthusiasm is amazing and without them the shops simply could not operate. If you could offer any help between October and December, please call into the Putney shop or contact CFGC directly.
Today, Cards for Good Causes is the UK’s largest multi-charity Christmas card organisation with over 300 outlets nationally and its aims are simple – to make Christmas cards as widely available as possible and to increase the awareness of the charities that we represent. Cards for Good Causes Limited (CFGC) pays the participating charities (or their trading subsidiaries) at least 75p in every pound from their card sales, less the VAT payable on the amount retained by CFGC. The retained amount covers CFGC’s costs of running the temporary charity Christmas card shops. In addition to these costs, the participants have to pay for the production and distribution of their cards.
So look out for the red triangular Santa sign for the best selection of charity Christmas cards and gifts!
