The festive season is sure to be getting under way in Hertford soon, and for the third year running the Town and Tourist Information Centre is hosting a Cards for Good Causes pop-up charity Christmas card shop. It launched on 2nd October and will stay open right up until Christmas Eve between 9.30 am and 5 pm Monday to Saturday.

Buying Christmas cards through Cards for Good Causes gives shoppers access to a wide selection of Christmas cards while supporting a range of national and local charities.

Staffed by the team at the Town & Tourist Information Centre, the Hertford pop-up shop is part of a network of more than 300 temporary shops run by Cards for Good Causes. Cards in aid of The Mayor of Hertford’s nominated charities Carers in Hertfordshire and Herts Young Homeless will be on sale, alongside those supporting charities including Cancer Research UK, Barnardo’s, NSPCC, Alzheimer’s Society, RNLI and many more.

The Mayor of Hertford Cllr Rosemary Bolton, said:
‘I am delighted to launch the Cards for Good Causes Pop Up shop as it promotes and supports so many worthwhile charities. I hope a lot of residents will pop into the shop and have a look at the wonderful cards and gifts that we have on offer. There is something for everyone. We are fortunate to have this excellent resource in Hertford.’

In the past ten years, charities have received more than £40 million from Cards for Good Causes, representing at least 74p in every pound.

As well as the pop-up shop the Hertford Town & Tourist Information Centre at 10-12 The Wash, opposite Hertford Theatre, offers residents and visitors alike a wide range of goods and services. With Hertford branded souvenirs and local products there will be plenty of gift ideas for the holiday season, as well as tickets for local events and walks.
