Christmas Card Shop Opens in Libraries across North Yorkshire!

The festive season got under way in North Yorkshire libraries when the Cards for Good Causes pop-up charity Christmas card shops opened in: Ripon, Filey, Harrogate, Knaresborough, Northallerton, Richmond, Scarborough, Skipton.

Buying Christmas cards through Cards for Good Causes is the best way to get access to the widest selection of Christmas cards available, as well as a fantastic range of seasonal gifts and products, while supporting a range of national and local charities.

Staffed by library staff and a team of local volunteers, the pop-up shops are 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.

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, napkins and stocking fillers*.

Shelley Mills, Area Organiser for Cards for Good Causes says: "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 libraries in Filey, Harrogate, Knaresborough, Northallerton, Richmond, Ripon, Scarborough, Skipton and get ahead with your Christmas preparations by buying your cards early."

In the past ten 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 pop-up shops are open during individual libraries' opening times, however times might vary so please contact the library in advance of your visit to check the shop's opening times.
