Cards for Good Causes, the charity Christmas card and gift retailer, is re-opening its doors in Stamford on Monday 25th October. The pop-up shop will, as usual, be in St John’s church at the end of the High Street and will be open from 9.30am-4.30pm, Monday to Saturday, plus 10am-4pm on Sunday.

The not-for-profit organisation always has a huge selection of charity Christmas cards and seasonal gifts with proceeds donated back to local and national charities. In the last 10 years alone, they have raised over £40 million for charity and last year, the Stamford community raised an incredible £40,000 with the sale of charity cards and gifts in the pop-up shop. This year it’s hoping to reach the heights of £100,000 and more that was raised each year pre lockdown.

Cards for Good Causes supports many charities, local and national, including:

- Alzheimer's Society
- Barnardo's
- Blood Cancer UK
- British Heart Foundation
- Cancer Research UK
- Diabetes UK
- Epilepsy Action
- MS Society
- Multiple Sclerosis Trust
- National Autistic Society
- NSPCC
- Parkinson's UK
- Perennial
- Queen Elizabeth's Foundation for Disabled People
- RNLI
- Save the Children
- Stroke Association
- Versus Arthritis

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 and stocking fillers.

Kate Riley, Shop Manager for Cards for Good Causes says: “We love bringing the Christmas spirit to town every year! Buying charity Christmas cards is one of the simplest ways to support good causes this festive season and we always stock the widest range of Christmas cards anywhere. The proceeds from every card or product sold make a vital contribution to the work of the charities that we support. Come and find us in St John’s Stamford”

Jeremy Lune, CEO of Cards for Good Causes,

Keith Busfield, one of the volunteers, says: “It’s a fun and festive place to volunteer. We’d love to have more people join our team. Pop along to the shop to see what’s involved.”

Jeremy Lune, CEO, for Cards for Good Causes says: “We are very much looking forward to being back in the heart of the Stamford community in the lead-up to Christmas this year. The people of Stamford last year were real stars and the shop is one of our flagship locations around the country. Many of our charities have not been able to source an income from their usual events during Covid times so buying a card or gift from us is a way of giving them that vital funding that many of them so desperately need at the moment.”
