  2. 10 Valentine's Ideas for Home

    It’s Valentine’s Day on 14th February but this year is going to be a little different from usual with lockdown still in place due to the Coronavirus pandemic. But all is not lost - you might not be able to go away for the weekend or book that favourite restaurant to celebrate the occasion but there is still lots to do from the comfort of your own home.

    .

    .

    We have put together 10 Valentine's Ideas to make it still feel that little bit special and give you something to plan and look forward to.

    1. Breakfast in Bed - It’s Sunday and there is nowhere to go so relax and have a lie in. Why not put a Valentine’s tray together and enjoy breakfast in bed
    2. Local Walk - One thing you can do is go for a leisurely stroll in the local area. Why not pick out some local landmarks that you both love and plan a special route

  3. Cards for Good Causes makes plea to Local Community

    With the Christmas season now over, Cards for Good Causes has closed its pop-up shops around the UK. It was an incredibly difficult and challenging time for the not-for-profit organisation with 50% of key trading wiped out by a lockdown in England during November 2020. With such an impact on sales, the Charity card and gift retailer has launched a January Sale online to help raise further funds for charity including Cancer Research UK, RNLI, Alzheimer’s Society and many more. 

    The sale includes both Charity Christmas cards and many beautiful gifts under £10 with a number of charities taking part in the sale. Charity Christmas card designs are from the 2020 collection so this is a last opportunity to buy some of the special designs from the year and support charity. 

    As a not-for-profit organisation, 100% of proceeds are given back to local and national charities - after operating costs, that’s at lea

  4. Coming out of Lockdown - Interview with Jeremy Lune, CEO

    With lockdown coming to an end, we asked Jeremy Lune, CEO at Cards for Good Causes, how the last four weeks have been and how he thinks the next four weeks will be in the lead up to Christmas.

    It has been a really challenging year for everyone. How did the lockdown affect Cards for Good Causes?

    Cards For Good Causes has a 60 year history of selling Christmas cards on behalf of hundreds of charities from the very smallest local organisations to the larger national charities, all of whom rely on us to generate income to provide life-changing services. As it has for all retailers, this year has presented a huge challenge, but none more so than the recent Lockdown that forced the closure of all non-essential retailers across England. While we wouldn’t question the important medical reasons behind restrictions as a whole, the timing of Lockdown 2 could not have been much worse for us. As a Christmas card retailer, we have 6 key weeks where p

  5. We're Back! Christmas pop-up Shops are back Supporting Charities this Christmas

    Cards for Good Causes, the charity Christmas card retailer, is opening its doors again in England on Wednesday 2nd December as the lockdown comes to an end. It has been a very tough time for the not-for-profit organisation with November being a peak trading month for raising vital funds for charity. They hope the local community will support them during December and they can recoup some of the lost £1million revenue that would have benefited so many charities this year.

    The not-for-profit organisation has over 150 temporary shops around the UK, selling a huge selection of charity Christmas cards and seasonal gifts with 100% of its proceeds given back to charity - that’s at least 70p in the £1 which is significantly higher than most other retailers. In the last 10 years alone, Cards for Good Causes has raised an incredible £40million for charity. It represents more

  8. ARE GREETINGS CARDS ESSENTIAL THIS CHRISTMAS?

    After the government’s England lockdown announcement, Cards for Good Causes, the UK’s largest charity Christmas card retailer, was forced to close its shop doors in England. In the past few weeks, they had opened over 150 Christmas pop-up shops throughout the UK to raise vital funds for charity and help people keep in touch with those they love in the most difficult of times this Christmas. 

    There were many predictions made early on in the season that Christmas Card sales could see a resurgence this year. As early as August, Google data showed demand in 2020 was already well above 2019 (4.61k in August 2020 versus 3.65k in August 2019). It was very evident that showing someone that you care and were thinking of them had become essential as people were locked in their homes and were not able to meet in person. With Christmas coming to the forefront this became ever more essential as people realised that they wouldn’t be able to come together in the

    The government lockdown in England has seen all Cards for Good Causes pop-up shops in England forced to close its shop doors for 4 weeks. It couldn’t have come at a worse time for the not-for-profit retailer as pop-up shops opened in October ready for the festive season; selling charity Christmas cards and gifts and raising vital funds for 250+ charities.

  10. CHRISTMAS POP-UP SHOPS MAY CLOSE IN ENGLAND BUT WE ARE STILL OPEN AND SUPPORTING CHARITIES THIS CHRISTMAS!

    After the government’s announcement on Saturday 31st October, Cards for Good Causes, the UK’s largest charity Christmas card retailer, will sadly be forced to close its shop doors in England this Thursday. In the past few weeks, we have opened over 150 Christmas pop-up shops throughout the UK to get the festive season under way and raise vital funds for charity.  

    The Cards for Good Causes team have worked incredibly hard over the last month including many thousands of volunteers who have given up their valuable time to get shops ready. November is our key month and this year we were on target to raise a staggering £1 million in November. To lose this is devastating for the whole Cards for Good Causes team and the hundreds of charities that we support.

    We are a not-for-profit organisation and have a huge selection of charity Christmas cards and seasonal gifts with 100% of our proceeds going back t
