Every year charity Christmas Cards are sold at St Mary's Church in Brecon, raising money for many different charities. There is a huge selection of cards with designs ranging from traditional nativity scenes to contemporary and humorous images. There is also a selection of bilingual and Welsh cards. The cards are all printed on top quality card and there is something to suit everyone.
The cards (and also wrapping paper, gift tags and gifts etc) and advent calendars will be on sale at St Mary's Church Brecon until Tuesday 17th December 2019. Shop opening times are Monday to Saturday 10.00am to 4.00pm.
Staffed by a team of local volunteers, the Brecon pop-up shop is part of a network of more than 300 temporary shops run by Cards for Good Causes, the UK’s largest 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.
The charities are:-
This is a particularly significant year for Cards for Good Causes as they mark their 60th birthday. Over the last six decades, charities have received in excess of £100 million from Cards for Good Causes, with the tireless support of thousands of volunteers across the country.
Jean and Liz, Shop Managers for Cards for Good Causes say: “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. Come and find us in Steeple Lane (off High Street) – just look out for the tower- and get ahead in your Christmas preparations by getting your cards early.” Jean and Liz look forward to seeing everyone during the run up to Christmas.
Why not visit us and also take a break over a coffee and cake in The Tower Cafe in the south aisle of the church.
Thank you to everyone for their kind support.
