The festive season gets underway in Tunbridge Wells when the Cards for Good Causes shop opens on Saturday 14th October. Perfect for those who want to get ahead in their Christmas preparations while supporting a range of national and local charities, the shop will offer a fantastic selection of cards and Christmas goods.
Staffed by a team of local volunteers, the Tunbridge Wells pop-up shop is part of a network of over 300 temporary shops run by CFGC, the UK’s largest multi-charity Christmas card organisation. It represents more than 250 charities including Cancer Research UK, Barnardo’s, NSPCC, Alzheimer’s Society, Parkinson’s UK, RNLI as well as cards from a number of local charities including Fegans, Help For Heroes, Hi Kent, Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance and Romney Marsh Historic Churches Trust.
This year, look out for exclusive Christmas designs by local artists Chris Burke and Elaine Gill, who were commissioned to do the murals on Tunbridge Wells railway station earlier this year depicting local scenes.
