Shrewsbury Charity Christmas Card Shop

Fri, 20th Oct 2017 10:15am to Fri, 1st Dec 2017 4:00pm

Shrewsbury Charity Christmas Card Shop opens in St Mary's Church, Shrewsbury on Friday 20th October 2017 for six weeks, from 10.15am until 4pm, Monday to Saturday. The shop is in its 51st year and is staffed by volunteers and 40 charities participate. There are large national groups as well as smaller local charities.

Last year the shop sold over £61,000 worth of cards, calendars, diaries and wrapping paper, with 98% of the takings going around 40 charities. There are thousands of cards with hundreds of designs on sale in the beautiful Trinity Chapel of St Mary's Church.

The spire of St Mary's is one of the tallest in England and for over 500 years it has dominated the skyline of Shrewsbury's old town. The church is now the only complete medieval church in Shrewsbury. It dates from Saxon times and has beautiful additions from the 12th-Century onwards.
