By kind permission of The Churches Conservation Trust charities many charities including Shropshire Disability Network/Safe place Shropshire are able to raise cash for their well deserved cause by selling their cards. The Charity Card Shop is open at St. Mary’s Church, St Mary’s Place, Shrewsbury SY1 1EF from Monday to Saturday 10 am-4 pm until Wednesday 5th December. They will also be open on Sunday 2nd December this year as there is another event taking place at the Church.
If you have not visited the card shop yet, please do. You will find the largest selection of Charity Cards in Shropshire. 40 Charities are taking part this year, many are local branches of National Charities but there are small charities like ours that need value support by buying their cards. It is also a good opportunity for us to raise awareness of our work. There are also diaries and wrappings for sale. The shop is staffed by volunteers from each of the charities, this is organised by a small committee and they do an excellent job. We thank our members who have volunteered to help at the card shop this year.
This year we have introduced two new cards, designed by our own members. They are the winning designs of the Christmas Card Competition we held earlier this year. Carole Lawrence won the competition with an oil painting of a Robin. Sam Taylor was runner up with his entry of Branches in Snow. Packs cost £3.99 for 10 cards and envelopes.
2017 Cards. We still have cards from 2018 (see below) but stocks of Porthill Bridge in Snow are very low. These packs are £3.99 for 10 cards and envelopes.
2016 Cards. A Bargain Buy, the packs below have been reduced to £2.00 a pack for 10 cards and envelopes.
Our Christmas Cards can be purchased from the Charity Card Shop at St. Mary’s Church, Shrewsbury. They will be available at our PRH Awareness Day on Thursday 29th November, Safe Place Table Top Sale at Edgmond Village Hall on Saturday 1st December, Alan Ward Charity Christmas Market on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th December and at our meeting at The Movement Centre, Oswestry on Thursday 13th December.
