The Original Norwich Charity Christmas Card Shop Opens

This year we are really pleased to be part of The Original Norwich Charity Christmas Card Shop for the first time.

Run entirely by volunteers, the shop was first established in 1965.  Operating as a 'pop up' shop during the eight weeks prior to Christmas, the committee doesn't know until the last minute where the shop will be located from year to year as it depends on vacant premises in the city. With little or no overheads, every penny raised goes to the charities involved.

2017's shop opened on Tuesday 24th October in a superb position on the bustling St Stephen's Street, and we were delighted to drop off our Christmas cards to be part of the store.

Thanks to Paul Macro Landscape Photography for donating images of beautiful local scenes - snowy beach huts at Wells-Next-The-Sea, and Christmas trees in Norwich's Royal Arcade - and to Clapham & Collinge Solicitors for sponsoring this year's cards.

So do pop along to the shop at 15 St Stephen's Street, Norwich, NR1 3QN (next door to Sainsbury's local) to stock up on your Christmas cards and support our work.

If you would like to volunteer in the shop for a couple of hours in a Friday - please contact us on 01603 886932.
