Pop-up Shop Cards for Good Causes to reopen in Grantham on Wednesday

Cards for Good Causes will open its doors in the George Centre, Grantham, on Wednesday. The pop-up Christmas card shop will reopen six days a week Monday to Friday 10am-4pm and 10am-2pm on Saturday.

The organisation opens pop-up shops all across the UK and sells festive items to raise money for dozens of national and local charities.

Normally this is through over 300 seasonal pop-up shops. In addition to cards, shoppers can also purchase wrapping paper, gift tags, decorations and advent calendars as well as gifts and toys. Many of the shops were unable to safely open this year, making a huge dent in charities’ valued funds.

In the last 10 years alone, over £40 million has been raised by Cards for Good Causes for UK charities through the generosity of all the loyal customers and the hard work of the volunteers. Everyone wants to keep raising as much money as possible, with at least 70p in every pound from the card sales going to support local and national causes. Charities benefitting include Cancer Research UK,Barnardo’s, British Heart Foundation, Shelter, British Red Cross, Alzheimer’s Society and RNLI, as well as a number of local charities.

Sally Scorer, Shop Manager at Cards for Good Causes, said: “Everyone wants to be telling loved ones they are thinking of them. During the Christmas period cards will be even more important.

Thanks to all our keen volunteers we are able to run our pop-up shop again this year.We are looking forward to welcoming lots of new shoppers plus our loyal customers.”

Jeremy Lune, CEO, for Cards for Good Causes added: “Many of our charities have not been able to source an income from their usual events this year so buying a card or gift from us is a way of giving them that vital funding that many of them so desperately need this year. Our online charity Christmas card sales have increased significantly already and we are really seeing people wanting Christmas to lift everyone’s spirits. It’s great that we can be a part of that.”
