Support good causes this Christmas!

The Visitor Centre is delighted to be hosting the Cards for Good Causes shop again this year,
working with the organisation in their partnership with over 30 charities, including St Margaret’s
Hospice, by selling cards and gifts to raise funds for the work they carry out every day of the year.
From the Army Benevolent Fund to the World Wildlife Fund, there are numerous designs to
choose from, we have light-hearted and modern images as well as the traditional nativity scenes
and robins (who doesn’t love a robin?!). You can also find a lovely selection of Advent Calendars
and candles, stocking fillers and all the essentials for presenting your gifts beautifully.

Buying from Cards for Good Causes is a small way of giving the cards you send extra meaning,
they are not just a way of sending love and good wishes to family and friends, especially after
having endured another year of lockdowns and separations, but there is also the added bonus of
knowing that you are supporting outstanding charitable work.

As we post this blog, we have recently learned that the Cards for Good Causes head office has
suffered a huge amount of damage, just at the time when trading is reaching its peak. We hope
that, by aiming to maximise the sales in our outlet, we can show them how valuable they are in
providing a platform that highlights worthwhile causes. We wish them well and hope we can help
make it a bumper year. 

Christmas Sparkle:
After missing out last year, we are thrilled to announce that we will be a donation point for the
local Christmas Sparkle project which was set up by volunteers to ensure that every child and
young adult (aged 0-18) in our area receives a gift for Christmas. The team of volunteers at
Christmas Sparkle put in an incredible amount of work to organise this and we hope that as many
people as possible will support them by donating a gift at the collection points. 

We hope that your preparations for Christmas are going smoothly, remember that we are here for
cards, stamps and locally made gifts and books of local interest, so why not pop in when you’re
next in town.
