Coronavirus (COVID-19)

In accordance with the latest government announcement regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, users should be aware of the instruction to stay at home, and to only leave the house for food, health reasons or essential work. You should also stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people.

In light of this, the groups, clubs and societies listed within the Shropshire Community Directory will be unable to meet until further notice, and there may be a reduced service for other local and national organisations.

For further information, please contact the individual groups or organisations listed.

Shrewsbury Charity Christmas Card Shop

Description:

The Shrewsbury Charity Christmas Card Shop is held every year in The Trinity Chapel of St Mary’s Church, Shrewsbury.  Last year the card shop celebrated 50 years of trading, and its sales amounted to just over £61,000.

It is run entirely by volunteers and the only costs incurred are those for rent, lighting and heating. Due to the low overheads at least 98% of takings are given to each charity (last year it was slightly more).  

Around 40 charities participate each year including small local charities, some larger local groups and national ones.  The shop is staffed on a rota basis so that every charity has a turn.  The shop sells Christmas cards, calendars, diaries and wrapping papers, and every charity is clearly labelled.

The shop generally opens in mid-October for 6 weeks, closing at the beginning of December. Hours are 10.15am until 4pm daily except Sundays (although the shop opens on the Sunday of the Chocolate festival weekend).

For further information, please follow the links to their Facebook and Twitter pages.
