Diabetes UK Christmas cards go on sale in hundreds of Cards for Good Causes shops and online

HUNDREDS of Cards for Good Causes shops have opened across the UK and are selling Diabetes UK Christmas cards, raising vital funds for the charity. At least 70p of every pound spent on Diabetes UK Christmas cards in the shops will be given directly to the charity. Cards for Good Causes manages around 300 shops around the UK which, in the run up to Christmas, are set up in vacant shop units, churches, libraries and other public spaces, and have already raised over £100 million over the years for hundreds of charities. This year Cards for Good Causes will be available at the Tourist Information Centre, on Lord Street, in Southport.

Judith Rich OBE, Vice President of Diabetes UK and the director of Cards for Good Causes from 1977 to 2000, said:- "This year's range of cards has a selection available for the widest of tastes, and they return a high percentage on all sales as the shops are run by volunteers. If you want to support a charity by buying Christmas cards, buying them directly is by far the most economic way as there are no hidden costs; after administrative costs, all the money goes to the charity, meaning Diabetes UK is raising the maximum possible funds from the sale. If you buy your charity cards from commercial shops, do check what percentage of the sale they will be passing on to the charity."

All the money received from the purchase of Diabetes UK cards will help the charity to care for, connect with, and campaign alongside even more of the 3.9 million people living with diabetes as it works to prevent and, one day, cure the condition.

The full range, of 24 designs, of Diabetes UK Christmas cards, along with wrapping paper and accessories, can also be ordered through its online store.   Also to find your nearest Cards for Good Causes local branch, visit CardsForCharity.Co.UK.
