Ledbury ‘Cards for Good Causes’ Charity Christmas Card Shop will open for a new festive season on Monday November 2, but in a new location.

In previous years, the pop-up shop was in the Heritage Centre in Church Lane. But the centre did not re-open for a new tourist season this year, because of the Covid crisis.

This year, the Cards for Good Causes shop will be "towards the top of New Street, in a pop-up Shop in what was Margaret Mateo’s Optician".

Staffed by a team of local volunteers, the Ledbury 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.

Cancer Research UK; Barnardo’s; NSPCC, Alzheimer’s Society and RNLI as well as a number of local charities such as Help for Heroes; Herefordshire Wildlife Trust; Lymphoma Action; Macular Society and St. Michaels Hospice are among those represented.

Pauline Smith and Julie Chandler, Shop Managers for Cards for Good Causes said: “Buying charity Christmas cards is one of the simplest ways to support good causes this festive season."
