Cards for Good Causes - the multi-charity Christmas card shop - opened in Axminster today (Monday, October 23).

Based at the town’s Heritage Centre, in Thomas Whitty House, in Silver Street, it will offer a wide variety of cards to suit all sorts of tastes – from traditional, contemporary, or ones to make people smile.

The shop stocks cards from 33 different charities ranging from big well-known names like Save the Children and Cancer Research to smaller charities such as Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation and Perennial Gardeners Benevolent Society, plus cards for local charities like the local Hospice and Wildlife Trust.

There will also be a range of Christmas goods including wrapping paper, gift tags, candles, stocking fillers, and traditional Advent calendars.

The Axminster shop is part of a nationwide network of more than 300 temporary CFGC shops, staffed by a team of local volunteers.

Operating until December 9, Monday to Saturday, the opening hours are 10am to 4 pm daily.

Buying charity Christmas cards is one of the simplest ways to support good causes. Not only do sales of the cards generate funds that help the charities to make a real difference, but also purchasing and sending them helps to raise awareness of the vital work these charities do.

Look out for the red triangular Santa signs to find the ‘Cards for Good Causes’ shop!
