A little bit of Christmas has arrived in Harrogate with the opening of the Cards for Good Causes seasonal shop at Harrogate Library on Victoria Avenue.
The UK’s largest multi-charity Christmas card organisation is once again decking the halls in its Harrogate shop, offering an array of festive cards and Christmas gift ideas.
The outlet sells cards for more than 28 national and local charities including Yorkshire Cancer Research.
Shelley Mills, Area Organiser said:
Our seasonal shops are a great way to prepare for Christmas while at the same time providing an important source of funding for charities.
In keeping with the Christmas spirit, sending charity Christmas cards allows you to give twice – once to friends and family, and again to worthwhile causes of your choice.
People can find the Harrogate shop by looking out for Cards for Good Causes’ distinctive triangular red Santa sign at Harrogate Library on Victoria Avenue, Harrogate.
In the past five years, charities have received more than £20 million from Cards for Good Causes – representing at least 70p in every pound out of which charities had to pay for the production and distribution of their Christmas cards and any VAT.
The Harrogate seasonal shop is part of the Cards for Good Causes’ national network of over 300 shops, selling cards for around 275 charities.
It is open during Library opening hours until Saturday 19 December.

In addition to these costs, the participants have to pay for the production and distribution of their cards.
