Shoppers have the chance to choose from hundreds of different Christmas card designs, as well as advent calendars and candles, wrapping paper, gift tags, napkins and stocking fillers, thanks to the opening of the Cards for Good Causes pop-up charity Christmas card shop which has opened at Sudbury Library, on Market Hill.

Buying Christmas cards through the shop offers a huge selection of cards as well as a range of seasonal gifts and products, while supporting national and local charities.

It is staffed by a team of local volunteers and 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 East Anglian Air Ambulance, St Nicholas Hospice and Suffolk Wildlife Trust

Luci Fry, the shop manager, said: “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. The proceeds from every card or product sold make a vital contribution to the work of the charities that we partner.”

In the past 10 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.

The shop is open from 9.30am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday.
