Reminder - Cards for Good Causes (until 18 Dec)

Visiting

Rankin Porch (next to Baptistery)
24th November 2012 10:00 - 16:00

This famous charity, which sells charity cards across the UK every year, opened its local shop in Liverpool Cathedral on 17 October (until 18 December) offering the chance to buy Christmas cards from more than 25 national and local charities.

Area Organiser, Andy Davies, said:,” As we’re part of the UK’s largest multi-charity Christmas card organisation, we offer a wide range of designs to choose from and a convenient way to support more than one good cause. We’re sure just one visit to our shop will help you with cards, wrapping paper and gift tags this season, helping to cross a few festive jobs off the list in one go.”

The shop, staffed by local volunteers, is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm.

It is in a new location this year in the main Cathedral inside "The Porch” next to the Baptistery

Look out for the big red Santas to show you the way!

Liverpool charity Christmas card shop is one of a countrywide network of shops which open in the run up to the festive season. Cards for Good Causes Limited (CFGC) pays the participating charities (or their trading subsidiaries) at least 75p in every pound from their card sales, less the VAT payable on the amount retained by CFGC. The retained amount covers CFGC’s costs of running the temporary charity Christmas card shops. In addition to these costs, the participants have to pay for the production and distribution of their own cards

The inspiration for the organisation came in 1959 when James ‘Jim’ Jackson, Secretary of the British Diabetic Association gathered a group of medical charities together to discuss the coordination of publicity for selling charity cards at Christmas. They formed The 1959 Group of Charities, a registered charity and multi-charity membership organisation, and in 1964 began selling cards from empty shops in town centres.

In 1988 Cards for Good Causes Limited was established as the trading company of The 1959 Group of Charities.

Admission to the Cathedral is FREE. Car park pay on exit.
