Christmas card shop raises thousands for local charities

Stratford Editorial 12th Jan, 2019   0

THE MCA Christmas Card shop in Stratford raised £13,700 for 28 different local and national charities.

The shop was located in the United Reformed Church in Rother Street for seven weeks in the run up to Christmas.

Shop organiser Catherine Davies said: “Without support from over 50 volunteers who helped in numerous ways we would not be able to pay back to all the participating charities at least 94 per cent of the sale price of the sold cards.

“My thanks go to all our customers from far and wide who regularly support MCA by buying our charity cards and sundries, the latter helping to pay for the cost of running the shop.”
